Chelsea Building Products announced the grand opening of its new Greenville, Texas, facility on April 9, 2019, with a reception, plant tours, and ribbon cutting ceremony.
The new 126,000-square-foot space, located at 1001 Ed Rutherford Drive, will be the second production facility for Chelsea Building Products in the United States.
Since 1975, Chelsea Building Products has operated solely out of its Pittsburgh, PA facility. Over the years, Chelsea’s product portfolio and customer base has continued to expand. Along with this growth, investments in equipment and infrastructure have been made in Oakmont to keep up with the demand for energy-efficient, high-performing window systems as well as PVC-based products such as mouldings, railings, shutters, and Everlast Advanced Composite Siding.
The new facility is strategically located to service Chelsea’s current and future customers in the southern and western United States. The 126,000-square-foot facility was previously used as an extrusion operation and has the capability for future expansion. The infrastructure is set up for a total of 15 extrusion lines, which allows for increased capacity.
“We knew at some point in time the demand for our products would necessitate a second production facility,” says Peter Dewil, President and CEO of Chelsea Building Products. “We expect to continue to make significant investments over the next three years in capacity expansion between the Pennsylvania and Texas plants. The addition of the Greenville facility will significantly increase the overall capacity of Chelsea Building Products.”
Chelsea Building Products is a member of the aluplast group, which holds a portfolio of global holdings and is an industry-leading brand in Europe.
“We acquired Chelsea Building Products as a cornerstone of our global strategy; building a strong platform for substantial growth,” says Dirk Seitz, Chairman of the aluplast group. “The investments that the aluplast group continues to make, in the expansion of Chelsea’s capacity both in Pennsylvania and now Texas, demonstrate our commitment to the North American market.”
