Over the past week or so, you may have seen stories on plasticsnews.com about vinyl building product companies expanding. I understand if you got confused and thought we posted the same story twice. It was actually two different companies growing thanks to the demand for decks, fences and other outdoor home projects.
For Utah's National Vinyl Products, its $20 million investment in Dover, Del., will not only create 100 jobs and double production capacity, but it will also aid its growth in the Eastern U.S.
Homeland Vinyl Products Inc. will invest at its existing site in Surgoinsville, Tenn., with $2.2 million to add 38,000 square feet of production space and 55 employees for new fence, deck and rail extrusion and assembly capabilities.
"People aren't going on vacation as much and they're making their space an outdoor oasis," NVP Chief Operating Officer Zack Clark told Plastics News' Catherine Kavanaugh. "Outdoor living areas are now a bigger part of our life than ever before."
