FAIRFIELD, Texas — Hoover Treated Wood Products (HTWP) broke ground on a $9 million wood treating facility scheduled to open in late 2023.
The plant – owned and operated by HTWP – will treat fire-retardant wood products. The release did not state the size of the facility.
The product, which is used to construct framing, sheathing for roofs and walls, will primarily be used in new multifamily and commercial construction.
"We are thrilled to expand our operations into Texas to service the booming commercial and residential construction industries," said Dave Gillrie, CEO, HTWP. "Fairfield is the ideal choice for our new facility which will feature state-of-the-art technology and bring terrific career opportunities. We truly appreciate the warm receptance we've received from the city and look forward to deepening our connection to this vibrant community."
HTWP plans to employ at least 50 employees in the first five years of operation.
