DUNA-USA Complete Expansion of Baytown, Texas, Plant
The expansion, which began in fall 2016, included the addition of a new manufacturing building, new office building, state-of-the-art automated fabrication department and an additional “continuous” polyurethane production line.
“Our investment in state-of-the-art equipment strategically places DUNA-USA to meet increased demand and anticipated market growth,” says Marta Brozzi, President of the DUNA Group. “We’ve exponentially increased production and fabrication capabilities and expect to realize significantly reduced lead times and increased production efficiency.”
According to company officials as part of the expansion, DUNA-USA implemented a proprietary automated fabrication department, including a 5-axis CNC machine and robotic warehouse. “We are excited to utilize the latest technology to provide the highest quality products and service to our customers,” says Andrea Benedetti, CEO of DUNA-USA.
“With the primary expansion goals complete, we are now focusing on expanding the polyisocyanurate side of our Baytown facility,” explains Benedetti. “We expect to begin this next phase of internal growth immediately.” DUNA-USA’s polyisocyanurate business is primarily targeted towards oil and gas, cryogenic, and LNG insulation applications and is the core business of the DUNA Group.
