VT Industries, Inc. Expands Holstein, Iowa Manufacturing Facility
HOLSTEIN, IA (October 20, 2016) — VT Industries is expanding their Holstein, Iowa architectural wood door manufacturing facility. This fall, ground was broken for an 82,000 square foot addition in an effort to increase manufacturing capacity for flush architectural wood doors. This major expansion comes on the heel of two milestone achievements in 2016; VT’s 60th anniversary, and the production of the 10 millionth door.
The 82,000 square foot production addition will accommodate the relocation of veneer production line as well as expanding capacity to continue to deliver on VT’s industry leading fixed lead-time strategy and the ability to do higher-end premium flush products and finishes in the Iowa manufacturing facility.
As part of the expansion, VT will also be renovating their existing production facility, constructing a new parking area, and adding a building adjacent to the current facility for the automation team.
The expansion is expected to be complete in June of 2017, bringing up to 60 new jobs to the area. VT is currently seeking qualified employees for a variety of positions including production, automation, and customer service. “With a strong reputation in northwest Iowa and a commitment to growth and innovation, VT continues to provide excellent employment opportunities as we continue to expand our architectural door operations,” notes Trisha Schmitt, vice president of corporate marketing.
