Representing a $150 million investment, the facility will create over 400 new jobs

 

CASA GRANDE, AZ (March 13, 2024) – FrameTec, a pioneering building component manufacturing plant and building framing services company, announced today plans to build a truss and wall panel manufacturing facility in Casa Grande, Arizona. The new facility will consist of two plant buildings, with the first phase of construction commencing in Summer 2024. The first plant is expected to be operational in 2026 followed by the second plant in 2027 and create over 400 total new jobs.

Representing a $150 million capital investment, FrameTec’s Casa Grande facility will be built on 30 acres at the northeast corner of Thornton Road and Ash Avenue, spanning 254,000 total square feet (127,000-square feet in each of the two buildings), doubling its manufacturing capacity compared to its first facility in Camp Verde.

 

Once operational, the Casa Grande facility will have the capacity to manufacture wooden roof/floor trusses and interior/exterior wall panels, and to distribute lumber and building materials that will support the completion of 6,000-7,000 tract homes per year. FrameTec’s highly automated plants employ a proprietary material handling and finger jointing system to help build its components which eliminates massive amounts of lumber waste. FrameTec’s material handling process has been awarded a US Patent and has the capability to build components for single-family homes, multi-family homes, hotels, or any type of wood framed structure without having to stop the manufacturing process for plant retooling. Due to its automation and efficiencies, FrameTec’s Casa Grande facility will have the capability of building the framing components for 25 homes (average of 2,000 square feet each) per day and each home can be constructed in the field in approximately two days.

“From its inception, it has been FrameTec’s mission to provide big solutions to big problems in the building industry,” said Kyle Brock, FrameTec’s CEO. “Given our housing shortages in Arizona and across the United States, the building construction industry has not been able to keep up with demand and continues to fall behind. FrameTec is adding significant capacity and innovation to the building industry while providing homebuilders and general contractors with a ‘one stop shop’ as a turnkey framing provider. The City of Casa Grande understands the need for innovation and responsible growth in our industry and we are thrilled that City officials have been so welcoming to FrameTec. We are eager to give back to this community by providing its residents with good paying jobs while generating a positive economic impact.”

The Casa Grande facility marks FrameTec’s second manufacturing facility in Arizona in addition to its U.S. Headquarters located in Camp Verde, which will begin operations this Fall. FrameTec plans to expand its presence, building additional facilities across the U.S. in the coming years.

“FrameTec’s expansion highlights the rapid manufacturing growth happening in Pinal County and across the state,” said Sandra Watson, President and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority. “The innovative Casa Grande facility will support housing construction in the state, enhance Arizona’s manufacturing industry, and create hundreds of skilled jobs. We are grateful to FrameTec for its continued investment in Arizona and look forward to supporting the company’s success in Casa Grande and beyond.”

Due to FrameTec’s equipment and machinery efficiencies, its ability to construct its components to ultra-tight tolerances, and due to its innovative patented material handling process, there is no other facility of its kind in the United States.

“The City of Casa Grande is excited to be welcoming FrameTec to our community,” said Casa Grande Mayor Craig McFarland. “As an innovator in the building component industry, FrameTec represents the type of cutting-edge company that every community strives to attract and it will play an important part in helping to support our residential, retail and commercial developments.”
