Uzin Utz North America announced the location of their second U.S.-based dry mortar facility to be located in Waco, Texas. The 125,000-sq.-ft. 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 $34 Million by the Uzin Utz Group, the new manufacturing facility will generate over 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.
"After a multi-year comprehensive study of future locations for our second North American facility, the city of Waco quickly became a front runner." stated Matthias Liebert, president of Uzin Utz North America Inc. "Our continued growth in the Western and Southwestern states, central location of Waco to current raw material suppliers and the shared values of the city leadership with our business philosophy made for a natural fit. We continue to see a strong demand for our industry leading products and system based solutions for the flooring installation contractor. Investment in a second manufacturing facility was necessary to maintain our high standards of product innovation, quality, speed of delivery, and technical service. To launch a project of this size during our current times is a testament to our passionate employees, strong distributor partners, and loyal flooring contractors."
Waco, Texas will mark the third location in North America for Uzin Utz North America Inc.
