Uzin Utz North America recently began construction on a $34 million, 125,000 sq. ft. facility in Waco, Texas. The manufacturing plant will initially produce self-leveling compounds, patches, thin sets and grouts. The site will also host the company’s training center for all brands, and act as the central location for R&D.
The plant is estimated to be operational by this fall.
According to the company the plant will generate approximately 40 new jobs, and increase the overall production capacities of all Uzin powder products. Additionally, the site will “provide customers closer proximity to training, logistics and technical services,” the company said.
“This project is a testament to the efforts of our employees in North America, customer acceptance of our brands, and strong innovation and technology of our products and services,” stated Philipp Utz, executive board member of Uzin Utz AG.“We can proudly say today that the decision to continue to invest in the North American flooring market has paid off; we will continue to invest strategically as needed to gain market share.”
Matthias Liebert, president of Uzin Utz North America, added, “We are a people company, and people truly made the decision in this complex process…to select the city of Waco, Texas.”
Waco will mark the third location in North America for Uzin Utz North America. Other locations include a manufacturing facility in Dover, Del., and a distribution facility in Aurora, Colo. The Uzin Utz Group also operates manufacturing facilities in Germany, the Netherlands, France, Poland, Switzerland, Slovenia, Indonesia and China.
