C.R. Laurence Completes Major Expansion of its U.S. Aluminum Division Headquarters in Waxahachie, Texas

New facility will increase production capacity while augmenting distribution capabilities to better serve key North American markets   C.R.

Laurence-the leading architectural hardware manufacturer and supplier to the glass and glazing industry-is proud to announce the completed expansion of its U.S. Aluminum Division headquarters in Waxahachie, Texas. The renovated facility will enhance production and distribution processes resulting in greater stock inventories, reduced lead times, and improved customer support.

At 350,000 sq. ft., the large-scale expansion doubled the size of the previous building. The result is a new, state-of-the-art facility that serves as the principal North American hub for U.S. Aluminum product manufacturing, fabrication, and distribution. Most importantly, the facility significantly increases inventory space to provide shorter lead times to project stakeholders.

"Waxahachie is very pleased that U.S. Aluminum has chosen our city to expand its current operation," said Kevin Strength, Mayor of Waxahachie. "Not only is this company a great community partner, they also create jobs and contribute to the health of the economic cycle. We are proud to call U.S. Aluminum our neighbor and wish them continued growth and success." 

"Expanding the U.S. Aluminum footprint in Waxahachie aligns with our long-term growth strategy, and will have an immediate positive impact on production and customer service," said Lloyd Talbert, President of C.R. Laurence. "This significant overhaul speaks to our confidence in, and success of, the U.S. Aluminum brand."

U.S. Aluminum President Gerald Hendrick, and Vice President of Operations Patrick Lowrey, will oversee the day-to-day management of the revamped facility. For more information on U.S. Aluminum, visit usalum.com.
