Alvic’s technology investments bring more production to U.S.
December 9, 2022 | 4:34 am CST

AUBURNDALE, Fla. -- Alvic USA, a manufacturer of cabinet doors and panels for residential and commercial projects, upgraded its domestic production capabilities with the addition of new press plates that will enable its entire 2023 promoted Syncron line to be produced at its central Florida facility.

With this technology, the company's Nocce, Anniversary Oak, Como Ash, and Woodline are four Syncron design collections that will now be fully produced in the USA. In total, investment in multiple press plates weighing nearly one ton each will bring more than a dozen Syncron colors to full production in U.S. factories.

“We know the importance of investing in in-house manufacturing capabilities to bring efficiency and supply reliability to our customers, as we consider the lead time and cost associated with imports,” said Kevin McDonald, vice president of sales. “We will continue to invest money and space in bringing more of our offerings to the USA. Everything that we can produce here – we will.”

The Syncron woodgrain designs are created with deep-textured plates that, with weight and pressure, imprint deep, tactile texture into a collection of over 30 woodgrains and abstract designs.

According to the company, the plates will enable Alvic USA to hold in-stock lead times at 7 to 10 days and remove the uncertainty of imported products. 

The company says that the new press plate investments are just the latest step in Alvic USA’s commitment to its North American customers. In 2022 the company introduced a shipping hub in Las Vegas.

More machinery investment plans are slated for early 2023 as well with the continued goal of full USA panel and component production.
