Germany-Based Uzin Utz North America Plans Waco, Texas, Manufacturing Center

01/22/2021
Uzin Utz North America Inc., a vertically integrated manufacturer of product installation systems and subsidiary of Germany-based Uzin-Utz AG, will invest $34 million to build its second North American manufacturing facility in Waco, Texas.

According to company officials, the 125,000 square-foot manufacturing facility will produce self-leveling compounds, thin set and grout material for tile installation, and patching compounds under the UZIN brand. Additionally, the facility will be home to the Uzin Utz North America training center bringing nearly 1,000 flooring professionals annually to the facility for training seminars.

“The continued growth in the state of Texas, central location of Waco to current raw material suppliers and shared values of the city leadership with our business philosophy made for a natural fit,” stated Matthias Liebert, President of Uzin Utz North America Inc. “During this unique economic and global situation, we have continued to see a strong demand for our products which made a second manufacturing facility necessary to maintain our high standards of product innovation, quality, speed of delivery, and technical service.”

The new facility will mark the third location in North America for Uzin Utz North America Inc. Current locations include a manufacturing facility in Dover, Delaware and distribution facility in Aurora, Colorado. The expansion also adds to the extensive global manufacturing footprint of Uzin-Utz AG with manufacturing facilities in Germany, Netherlands, France, Poland, Switzerland, Slovenia, Indonesia, and China.

Uzin Utz North America’s decision to locate in Greater Waco represents a regional economic development collaboration between the City of Waco and McLennan County, with both entities strategically partnering to provide incentives to support the project.

“I’m thrilled that Waco’s economy continues to grow in 2021 with the addition of Uzin Utz, who is bringing good jobs and great capital investments to Waco. This is further evidence that Waco’s pro-business approach makes it an ideal place for projects such as this. Many thanks to our partnerships at the Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce and McLennan County for partnering with the City of Waco on this project and welcome to Waco, Uzin Utz,” said City of Waco Mayor, Dillon Meek.
