Expansions are underway for more PVC fence and rail production in Utah and Delaware for Oldcastle APG's Barrette Outdoor Living facilities that include investments in automation, recycling and production.
Nephi, Utah, will see a 30,000-square-foot expansion, expected to be complete in early 2023, with "state-of-the-art automation and allow for additional extrusion lines, in-line fabrication and product kitting." Dover, Del., will have an additional 13,000-square-foot building that will feature PVC recycling as part of Barrette's GreenWays Recycling Program. It is also expected to be complete in 2023.
Both sites were part of National Vinyl Products, acquired by Barrette in 2021. Construction also is underway for a new NVP plant in Brooksville, Fla.
"With NVP now being a part of the Barrette Outdoor Living portfolio within Oldcastle APG, we are able to grow our footprint in the marketplace — allowing us to serve our customers in more meaningful and efficient ways," said Zack Clark, general manager of NVP, in a news release.
