Bangladeshi electronics giant Walton has added a new state-of-the art ceramic, nonstick and HTR coating unit to its kitchen appliance production line.

Walton's kitchen appliance products will be more attractive and durable with the new coating system which is approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The coating of various home appliance can be done in the factory equipped with European standard advanced machineries. The unit has 24 lakh production capacity annually.

On Sunday (November 21, 2021) ceramic, nonstick and HTR coating unit was inaugurated at Walton Hi-Tech Industries Limited (WHIL) in Gazipur. WHIL's Director Nishat Tasnim Shuchi, who is now staying at the USA, sent a message wishing new unit's overall success.

Coating system will ensure 100% quality in the product manufacturing process. The products will be exported after meeting the local demand.

Mustainur Rahman said that the coating is actually a type of liquid polymer applied mechanically to an object or business products making the materials more attractive, non-sticky and sustainable.
