LG Hausys Opens New U.S. Facility for Quartz Surfaces

July 02, 2010

LG Hausys has invested $50 million in a new manufacturing facility to meet the market demand for its Viatera collection of quartz surfaces. The production facility is slated to open December 2010 just outside Atlanta.
 
The 95,000-sq.-ft. manufacturing and distribution facility will sit adjacent to LG Hausys’ first U.S.-based facility, which opened in 2004 to support production of its HI-MACS solid surface materials. “There were several different aspects that went into our decision to make a substantial investment in the new facility,” said Greg Vas Nunes, executive VP of LG Hausys’ surfaces division. “The first thing we always consider is our customers. And with the growing demand for quartz-style surfaces in residential and commercial interiors, it was the right time for us to expand our production capabilities in the U.S. At the same time, we’ll be able to dramatically reduce lead times and increase the efficiencies in distribution. We’ve added another way to contribute to LEED-certified projects with regionally produced sustainable quartz surfaces.”
