What do Apple, Tesla and Deceuninck North America have in common? They are all putting major operations in the Reno, Nev., area.
Deceuninck announced it is breaking new ground with its first Western U.S. manufacturing facility. Planting roots in Fernley, Nev., its soon-to-be 150,000-square-foot facility with a rail spur will be able to accommodate up to 24 extrusion lines. The facility, which will sit on a 28-acre site, will accommodate extrusion, manufacturing support, offices and a warehouse. It is scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2016.
Deceuninck will hire 30 to 40 workers initially, according to a report from the Reno Gazette Journal.
A groundbreaking ceremony marked the company’s official entry into the Western market and featured a reception and lunch on Saturday at the Hyatt Place Reno-Tahoe Airport. The event also featured presentations by Tom Debusschere, CEO of Deceuninck Group, Filip Geeraert, president and CEO of Deceuninck North America and Fernley Mayor Roy Edgington Jr. This was followed by a trip to the location of the future facility to break ground.
“Since the mid-1990s, Deceuninck North America has maintained a strong presence in the east from our headquarters in Monroe, Ohio,” Geeraert says. “The new facility near Reno will mark a new era for Deceuninck, and we are thrilled to continue our reputation for stellar service with our western expansion.”
This new facility comes on the heels of recent expansion and growth globally with the Pimapen acquisition in Europe, which makes Deceuninck the No. 1 supplier of vinyl windows in Turkey, Europe’s second-largest PVC window market.
