PVC decking and dock products manufacturer TIVA Building Products, Mississauga, Ontario, has purchased 36 acres with a 50,000+-sq. ft. production facility in South Carolina as its first facility in the U.S.
The existing facility will undergo power supply improvements, multiple extrusion line installations, and office space renovations to be operational for the second half of 2022.
“We have evaluated U.S. manufacturing facility sites for quite some time and knew even at the start of our business seven years ago it was never a matter of if but when,” said Terry Fangrad, CEO of TIVA Building Products. “The facility is perfect for significant capacity of production and inventory, while the site will accommodate multiple expansions as the TIVA brand continues to grow in North America.”
The facility will service existing wholesale distributors Sherwood Lumber and Weston Forest Products, as well as pending new distribution partners throughout the U.S.
Mike Kunard, national sales manager, said, “This is a meaningful and timely investment for the growth curve of TIVA Building Products as wholesale customers and prospects are asking for increased support to their business in capacity and producing a responsible product mix. TIVA Building Products is delivering exactly that.”
Products include TIVADEK, TIVADOK and TIVACOAT. TIVADEK offers a lifetime warranty in 12 colors, all of which are reversible to provide one board with two chances. TIVADOK is offered in 2 colors at a size of 2”x8” nominal and is span capable of 32” on center due to its reinforced aluminum core technology. TIVACOAT is a zero VOC, waterproof membrane offering contractors a 55% cost savings to joist protection systems and is self-sealing when penetrated by fasteners.
