The site selection is in process and will be greater than 25,000 square feet.
“We are extremely proud and excited to be expanding upon our already-established presence within the Texas and South Central market with this new facility,” says Ken Werbowy, president of Tubelite. “This new facility will allow us to provide even faster lead-times and damage-free shipments to our existing customers in the region through the use of on-site CNC machining for door and frame fabrication, as well as warehousing stock products.”
Existing client services personnel, who currently are working out of the company’s Mesquite, Texas offices, will relocate to the new facility where they will join new hires for the operation. To complement the investment and commitment to the region, the company has begun recruiting for additional sales and architectural specification positions to further assist their customers in the area.
Werbowy adds, “This expansion strengthens our current strategy and commitment to both our glazing contractor clients, as well as distributors in the region.”
