It is scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2016.
A groundbreaking ceremony marked Deceuninck’s official entry into the western market and featured a reception and lunch on September 19, 2015 at the Hyatt Place Reno-Tahoe Airport. The event also featured presentations by Tom Debusschere, CEO of Deceuninck Group; Filip Geeraert, president and CEO of Deceuninck North America and The Honorable Roy Edgington Jr. of Fernley. This was followed by a trip to the location of the future facility to break ground.
“Since the mid-1990s, Deceuninck North America has maintained a strong presence in the east from our headquarters in Monroe, Ohio,” Geeraert said. “The new facility near Reno will mark a new era for Deceuninck, and we are thrilled to continue our reputation for stellar service with our western expansion.”
This new facility comes on the heels of recent expansion and growth globally with the Pimapen acquisition in Europe, which makes Deceuninck the number one supplier of vinyl windows in Turkey, Europe’s second largest PVC window market. This also strengthens Deceuninck’s top three position worldwide.
