Concord expands operation capabilities to meet growing demand.
In response to growing customer demand Concord has recently allocated considerable capital resources in equipment and facility improvements. One such improvement is the addition of a second Extrusion die being added to Concord's existing 150"-wide Extrusion Coating Line. This addition will effectively make the operation into what is known as a "Tandem" line and is projected to allow for an impressive 50% - 60% improvement in process efficiency. Other investments include new converting machinery, additional silo storage, a new hot-melt application system, and other material processing equipment. Implementation of these new systems and equipment will be conducted in phases to ensure a successful transition and allow for additional personnel training.

Amb. Michael Froman: If We Don’t Write The Rules Of The Global Economy, Others Will.
America is at a crossroads in the world economy. If we don’t take the lead in writing the economic rules of the road through trade agreements like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), other countries will.
The United States economy continues to gain strength and create new jobs and opportunities for the American middle class, while acting as a driver of the global economy.
November, 06th, 2015
This is an extraordinary achievement. Just seven years ago, the American economy was devastated by the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. Countless families lost everything, and American companies were driven out of business left and right. The next several years were extremely difficult, but the resilience of the American people, aided by proactive economic policymaking, won through and brought recovery.
Made-in-America exports have been a major part of the story, contributing a full third of our economic growth from mid-2009 to 2014 as we fought our way back. In fact, we’re in the midst of the longest streak of consistent monthly job creation in United States history, with more than 13 million private sector jobs created since March of 2010. The number of new businesses and new factories has been climbing again, too — a reversal of sharp declines during the crisis.
Secretary of Commerce, Mrs. Penny Pritzker with Liliana Quiñones at The White House.
Penny Pritzker, Secretary of Commerce, speech.
What an honor it was for Concord Supply to know Mr. Victor Quinones’ story was chosen as an example by Mrs. Penny Pritzker, Secretary of Commerce, during her recent national speech. Excerpt found below.
“Take Victor Quinones, for example. Victor is a native of Reynosa, Mexico, who started Concord Supply, based in San Antonio. The firm primarily manufactures materials that package and protect steel during the shipping process. All of Concord’s products are not only Victor’s own inventions, but are protected by six patents. A few years ago, Victor invented an entirely different material – one that soaks up oil, but not water – and saw the potential to sell it to customers abroad. He reached out to the Commerce Department’s Minority Business Development Agency’s center in San Antonio, which connected Concord with partners and investors in Mexico.
June 15th, 2015
The company ultimately received a $50 million contract to deploy Victor’s technology and protect Mexican waters in the event of an oil spill. The contract represents a 50 percent increase in revenue and supports more than 100 jobs at Concord Supply.
Victor is an innovator who took his inventions and turned them into a successful company; he is an exporter who wants free trade agreements that open global markets to his goods; and he is a successful business leader who has created jobs. Victor’s story exemplifies how the continued expansion of our economy depends on extending the reach and strength of Hispanic Americans. Our nation will only be stronger if we give business owners like Victor, Nina, and Antonio the opportunity to act on their ideas and pursue their dreams.”
