Accoya Breaks Ground On a Tennessee Manufacturing Facility

Accoya USA, LLC. is on track to begin manufacturing Accoya in early 2024 after breaking ground on its U.S. manufacturing facility in June. Once operational, the Kingsport site is expected to create 50 new jobs and double the company’s 2022 Accoya sustainable wood production volumes.

“Our sales in North America grew 44 percent between our fiscal 2021 and 2022 years and we are seeing continued strong demand for Accoya,” said John Alexander, group sales director, at Accsys.

The groundbreaking comes on the heels of the completion of the fourth acetylation reactor at Arnhem, the Netherlands plant in September. The fourth reactor increases Arnhem’s Accoya production capacity by 33 percent and the Kingsport facility will increase capacity by 67 percent from 2022 volumes.

Once operational in early 2024, the Kingsport facility will supply the North American market and the Netherlands plant will supply the rest of the world. The U.S. reactors are currently being transported from Europe and will arrive in Kingsport in January 2023.

“We are excited to join the Kingsport community and witness the progression of the U.S. facility,” said Rod Graf, general manager of Accoya USA. “Our state-of-the-art facility will increase capacity, create local jobs, and build community.”
