Deceuninck North America Opens Production Facility Near Reno, Nevada

Deceuninck North America, a fully integrated design, compounding, tooling, lamination and PVC extrusion company that produces energy-efficient vinyl window and door systems, opened its $20 million, 150,000-square-foot, facility on a 28-acre site near Reno, Nevada.

According to company officials the plant can accommodate up to 24 extrusion lines and includes manufacturing support, offices and a warehouse. The Fernley facility will have an initial staff of 35.

"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," said Filip Geeraert, President/CEO, Deceuninck North America, which is headquartered in Monroe, Ohio. "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."

As a purpose-built plant, the facility was designed and built specifically to meet Deceuninck's manufacturing requirements. The facility features a streamlined manufacturing flow, from the two railroad spurs serving the Fernley location to the movement of materials through the facility and shipment of the finished product. The plant is also built 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," Van Eeckhout said.
