Veka announced on Monday that it will be adding a fourth extrusion facility in North America. The company says site selection has been narrowed down to three existing plant properties in the Carolinas, with each facility featuring more than 160,000 square feet of floor space. That plant will open in 2018.
The new location will accommodate up to 30 extrusion lines and will also include manufacturing support, value-added services, offices and warehouse space.
“In 2015, we surpassed our pre-recession sales and production levels,” said Joe Peilert, Veka’s North American president. “We made strategic investments at all three North American facilities to accommodate our growth. We are continuing to add capacity to our existing sites in Fombell, Pa., Reno, Nev., and Terrell, Texas.”
