Germany-based Knauf Insulation Plans McGregor, Texas, Manufacturing Plant

Germany-based The Knauf Group plans to expand its Knauf Insulation North America with a 600,000 square feet state-of-the-art facility at the Industrial Park in McGregor, Texas. The project is expected to create 166 jobs.

While currently finalizing permits with the State of Texas and the City of McGregor, Knauf said it intends to break ground by the fourth quarter of 2021.

"This is a great day for our employees, customers, vendors, shareholders, the citizens of McGregor, Texas, and the greater Waco area," said Knauf Insulation North America CEO Matt Parrish. "At Knauf Insulation, we are excited to expand our North American manufacturing operations to McGregor, Texas. As part of a global, family-owned business, we believe the timing is right, and McGregor is exactly the type of community where we desire to expand and partner for the future."

Knauf Insulation is a leading global manufacturer of fiberglass insulation, delivering thermal and acoustical solutions for residential, commercial, industrial and OEM applications.

"The Greater Waco Chamber had the privilege of working with the Knauf family as they sought to find a home for their new production facility," said Greater Waco Chamber SVP for Economic Development Kris Collins. "Securing a location in the McGregor Industrial Park will allow them to manufacture products that will offer solutions to the bustling construction industry in Texas and throughout this region of the country. Their arrival will instantly impact the Greater Waco area, and we welcome them to Central Texas."

Knauf Insulation worked in cooperation with the City of McGregor, McGregor Economic Development Corporation, Greater Waco Chamber of Commerce, McGregor Independent School District as well as partners and community members across McLennan County.
