Reno, Nev.—Ohio-based Deceuninck North America has announced the opening of a $20 million, 150,000-square-foot production facility on a 28-acre site in Fernley, Nev. The asset can accommodate up to 24 extrusion lines and includes manufacturing support, offices and a warehouse. The Fernley facility will initially employ 35 employees.

“Our western expansion creates the potential for significant growth and reinforces Deceuninck’s commitment to existing customers in the West and further meets the need for window systems, profiles and tools designed for the western market and climate. We were honoured to celebrate the grand opening of our Fernley plant with our valued customers, fabricators, Reno-area officials and the international business community,” Filip Geeraert, president & CEO of Deceuninck North America, said in prepared remarks.

As a purpose-build plant, the facility was developed in such a way as to fall in line with the company’s manufacturing requirements. The asset features a streamlined manufacturing flow, starting from the two railroad spurs serving the Fernley location to the movement of materials through the facility and shipment of the finished product. In addition, the property is developed as to accommodate future growth.

“The Fernley plant is a significant addition for the Deceuninck Group business and will enable our North American operations to more efficiently serve its western customers as the industry continues to evolve its lean manufacturing approach,” said Francis Van Eeckhout, CEO of Deceuninck Group.
