Kval's upcoming plant

HUTTO, Tx. - Kval Inc., a manufacturer of CNC machinery for door production, will build a new 52,500-square-foot plant in Texas to meet rising demand.

Kval expects the new facility to significantly reduce lead times and increase production capacity to better serve its customers, many of whom are located in Texas. As a result, Kval will have the capacity to double its residential pre-hung door machinery output to support the company's increased market share and growth.

"Our investment in the new Hutto facility is a direct reflection of our unwavering commitment to our customers," said Nate Kvalheim, President of Kval. "Extended lead times have been a hindrance for far too long and, as our market continues to grow, this expansion—with its state-of-the-art facility, dedicated people, and our time-tested processes—is indicative of the demand for our high-quality machinery and our desire to meet that demand."

The facility will house a full production staff, on-site machining operations, as well as a secondary parts inventory warehouse to complement the company's headquarters in Petaluma, California. The plant is expected to add more than 80 jobs over the next three years in Hutto and the surrounding Austin region.

Founded in 1947, Kval manufacturers CNC machines that are specialized for door manufacturers.
