GREENVILLE, Texas — Chelsea Building Products recently held a grand opening for its new Greenville, Texas facility

The new 126,000-square-foot space, located at 1001 Ed Rutherford Drive, is the second production facility for Chelsea Building Products in the U.S.

Since 1975, Chelsea Building Products has operated solely out of its Pittsburgh area facility.

The company said that over the years its product portfolio and customer base has continued to expand. Along with this growth, investments in equipment and infrastructure have been made in Oakmont to keep up with the demand for energy-efficient, high-performing window systems as well as PVC-based products such as mouldings, railings, shutters, and Everlast Advanced Composite Siding.

The new facility is strategically located to service Chelsea’s current and future customers in the southern and western United States. The facility was previously used as an extrusion operation and has the capability for future expansion. The infrastructure is set up for a total of 15 extrusion lines, which allows for increased capacity.

“We knew at some point in time the demand for our products would necessitate a second production facility,” says Peter Dewil, president and CEO of Chelsea Building Products. “We expect to continue to make significant investments over the next three years in capacity expansion between the Pennsylvania and Texas plants. The addition of the Greenville facility will significantly increase the overall capacity of Chelsea Building Products.”

Chelsea Building Products is a member of the aluplast group, which holds a portfolio of global holdings and is an industry-leading brand in Europe.

Founded as Poly-Tex Co., Chelsea saw sales of $80 million in the most recent year, according to Plastics News.
