Joint Agreement to Build Manufacturing Facility Supports Growth of Solid Surface Products

Hanwha L&C Corp. and Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces have announced a joint-venture agreement to build a manufacturing facility in Temple, Texas, supporting expansion and growth of the Hanex Solid Surfaces and Wilsonart Solid Surface product lines. The more-than-125,000-square-foot facility provides both companies with added capacity and onsite product development capabilities to service their respective North American solid surface customers.
As the demand for solid surface products increases in the commercial market, both Hanwha and Wilsonart experienced a need to expand production. Additionally, the facility gives both brands the ability to maximize product availability, proximity to customers and better serve the solid surface market with locally made products. 
“Manufacturing in Temple, Texas, where Wilsonart’s North American business is based, makes sense,” says Andrew Korzen, vice president, product management for Wilsonart Solid Surface and Wilsonart Quartz. “It supports our strategy to expand our Engineered Surfaces product platform, and represents a commitment to our Solid Surface program.”
“The timing of this initiative coincides with our renewed strategic focus on the solid surface market,” says Steve Becker, vice president, corporate sales and marketing for Hanwha Surfaces. “Additionally, we will have a second production line for our HanStone Quartz brand operational in September. It is our strategic vision to move our manufacturing to North America to create synergies not only for Hanwha, but also for our customers across all sectors.”
