ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 12 - Carestream Health, Inc., formerly Eastman Kodak Company's Health Group, announces the launch of Tollcoating.com-a new contract manufacturing business that provides solvent and aqueous coating services using state-of-the-art technologies for medical, display, electronics and imaging products. Based at the company's world-class manufacturing facilities in White City, Ore., and Windsor, Colo., Tollcoating.com leverages its worldwide network of manufacturing resources to deliver specialized high-speed, multi-layer, precision coatings.
