WILSONART ENGINEERED SURFACES & HANWHA SURFACES JOIN FORCES TO GROW SOLID SURFACE PRODUCTION IN NORTH AMERICA
Manufacturers Team Up to Build Expansive New Facility
(TEMPLE, TX – July 2017) – Hanwha L&C Corporation and Wilsonart® Engineered Surfaces announces a joint-venture agreement to build a manufacturing facility in Temple, Texas, supporting expansion and growth of the Hanex Solid Surfaces and Wilsonart® Solid Surface product lines. The more-than-125,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility which provides both companies with added capacity and onsite product development capabilities to service their North American solid surface customers is slated to begin production in July of 2018.
As the demand for solid surface products increases in the commercial market, both Hanwha and Wilsonart experienced a need to expand production. By creating one facility, the companies are able to optimize production space and streamline efficiencies. Additionally, the new facility gives both brands the ability to maximize product availability, proximity to customers and better serve the solid surface market with American made products.
Quote from Wilsonart:
“Manufacturing in Temple, Texas, where Wilsonart’s North American business is based, makes perfect sense,” says Andrew Korzen, Vice President, Product Management for Wilsonart Solid Surface and Wilsonart® Quartz. “It places us closer to our customers, and allows us to focus on product and design development for the North American marketplace.”
Quote from Hanwha Surfaces:
“The timing of this initiative coincides perfectly with our renewed strategic focus on the solid surface market,” says Steve Becker, Vice President, Corporate Sales and Marketing for Hanwha Surfaces. “Additionally, we will have a second production line for our HanStone Quartz brand operational in September. It is our strategic vision to move our manufacturing to North America to create synergies not only for Hanwha, but also for our customers across all sectors.”
