Latricrete Announces Expansion of Manufacturing & Distribution Facility
Grand Prairie, TX, June 10, 2016—Laticrete announced the expansion of its manufacturing and distribution facility in Grand Prairie, Texas with a ground-breaking ceremony.
Construction of the 70,000 square foot addition to the existing 100,000 square foot, Laticrete facility will begin immediately and is expected to be completed in the spring of 2017. The Grand Prairie facility is the company’s largest manufacturing and distribution center outside of the Laticrete headquarters in Bethany, Connecticut. The facility manufacturers a wide array of products for the construction industry, employs a staff of more than 30 and recently added a third shift to meet steadily increasing demand.
The Grand Prairie facility services the customers in the Texas sales region and serves as a national and international distribution hub for Laticrete. The expanded space will be used immediately for warehousing and will position the facility to meet potential future manufacturing needs.
The plant expansion coincides with a period of unprecedented growth for the family-owned and privately held Laticrete. Over the past three years the company has acquired three companies and expanded the product lines it offers. Laticrete also recently completed an expansion of a similar facility in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, which serves the northeastern U.S. sales region.
