Vetrotech Saint-Gobain’s North American headquarters at 2108 B St. NW, Suite 110 in Auburn, Wash., has doubled its production footprint, consolidating production of its fire-rated glazing and framing systems into one building.
“This expansion is in direct response to what we’re hearing from our customers,” says Kevin Norcross, general manager. “COVID-19 has tested our entire industry, wreaking havoc on construction schedules. Our customers are balancing many moving deadlines as situations change seemingly daily around the country. Lots of glazing contractors’ lead times are shortening, requiring manufacturers like Vetrotech to be more nimble as a result.”
Vetrotech Saint-Gobain manufactures and processes fire-rated glass and framing systems at its North American facility. By increasing the facility footprint and consolidating production facilities, the company will be more responsive to customers with shorter lead times and increased production capacity, according to the announcement.
“Now more than ever, our customers rely on Vetrotech’s promise of ‘No Compromise,’” adds Norcross. “In an era of ‘business as unusual,’ we know that architects and glazing contractors need a partner they can depend on for high-quality fire-rated products, fast.”
