Saint-Gobain announced the Vetrotech North America headquarters are relocating from Auburn, Wash., to Faribault, Minn.

Kevin Norcross, general manager of Vetrotech Saint-Gobain North America, says that the move will allow the company to invest in new manufacturing technology and leverage collaboration with other local Saint-Gobain businesses, notably Sage Electrochromics.

He adds that the technology investments will enable Vetrotech to introduce its Contraflam-One fire-rated glass technology to the market in the U.S.

“Vetrotech North America’s relocation to Faribault will provide us the tools and synergies we need as we continue our commitment to growing our presence in North America and serving our customers,” he says. “We thank the Auburn community for their years of hospitality to our business and look forward to engaging with new neighbors in Faribault and building successful partnerships.”

Officials state the relocation is expected to be completed by the end of 2023.
