Devele Establishes Butte, Montana, Manufacturing Plant

Dvele will establish a modular home manufacturing plant in Butte, Montana. The $80 million project is expected to create 300 jobs.

The new 360,000-square-foot facility will support the production of affordable workforce housing in Montana.

“When I first met the governor he told us that Montana was open for business, and he meant it. Where we are today, it’s great to say that Dvele is now open for business in Montana,” Dvele co-founder and CEO Kurt Goodjohn said.

Founded in 2018, Dvele has designed, manufactured, and built over 270 modular homes throughout the U.S. and Canada. The homes are built and shipped out for placement in a shorter timeline than traditional housing construction, costing about 30% to 40% less.

“With our business-friendly environment, unmatched quality of life, and Montanans’ strong work ethic, Montana is emerging as a hub for innovative job creators like Dvele,” Governor Greg Gianforte noted. “Dvele’s investment is fantastic news for Butte and our entire state, especially as we work to increase the supply of affordable workforce housing in Montana.”
