LaCantina Doors recently moved into a new 140,000-square-foot facility in Oceanside, Calif., that will be home to its manufacturing operations.
Approximately twice the size of its previous space, the new LaCantina facility includes space for manufacturing, warehousing, research and development, sales, marketing and customer service support.
The new facility provides room for future growth and new product lines.
“The production area incorporates lean manufacturing principals and was designed with optimal efficient space planning, resulting in shorter lead times, better quality, more consistency and a safer, healthier work environment,” says John Conway, the company’s newly appointed director of operations.
“As our fifth facility, this is our most robust and sophisticated yet with 100 percent of operations dedicated to designing and manufacturing the most innovative open space products in the market,” adds Lee Maughan, general manager and vice president.
In addition, the new facility will feature an expanded showroom, which is currently being designed.
