YKK AP America, a manufacturer of entrances, storefronts, curtainwalls, window walls, sunshades, windows and sliding doors for office buildings, residential high-rises, schools, stadiums, shopping centers and institutional structures, has announced plans to expand its presence in the Texas market.
In the spring of 2014, YKK AP America intends to open a new production, distribution, and logistics facility located in the Dallas/Fort Worth metropolitan area. The new facility will greatly exceed YKK AP’s current footprint in the state and allow for an increase in local product production and technical support services for the Texas market and points further west.
“Texas is strong market and focal point for YKK AP America as we look to expand in the local area as well as the western United States,” says Oliver Stepe, senior vice president, YKK AP America. “The new facility with expanded production and customer support functions will allow us to strengthen service, shorten lead-times, and improve transportation services throughout the Texas region and to points further west.”
