UZIN UTZ North America Inc. Hosts Ground Breaking Event for UZIN New Facility
UZIN UTZ NORTH AMERICA INC. hosted a Ground Breaking Event last week for their new 125,000 sqft dry mortar facility located in Waco, Texas. With over 70 local community members, business owners, and local leadership in attendance, members of UZIN UTZ North America officially kicked off the construction project.
“We are a people company and people truly made the decision in this complex process for us to select the city of Waco, Texas,” stated Matthias Liebert, President of UZIN UTZ North America Inc. “Today’s turnout by the community at our ground breaking event is further confirmation that we made the right decision. We look forward to starting the construction process and further strengthening our ties in the community of Waco and McLennan County”
The 125,000 sqft facility will produce self-leveling compounds, patches, thin sets, grouts, and other product categories in the future. In addition to manufacturing capacities it will also be the location of the new UZIN UTZ North America training center for all brands, and the central location for R&D. With an investment of over 34 mil (USD) by the UZIN UTZ Group the new manufacturing facility will generate around 40 new job opportunities for the region. Overall production capacities of UZIN powder products will increase when the new facility is operational, and provide customers closer proximity to training, logistics, and technical services provided by UZIN UTZ North America Inc. The plant is estimated to be operational by mid-2022.
“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 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”
Waco, Texas will mark the third location in North America for UZIN UTZ North America Inc. Current locations include a manufacturing facility in Dover, Delaware and distribution facility in Aurora, Colorado. The expansion also adds to the extensive global manufacturing footprint of the UZIN UTZ Group with manufacturing facilities in Germany, Netherlands, France, Poland, Switzerland, Slovenia, Indonesia, and China.
