Project Details


Unifrax has been making a polycrystalline fiber product which is currently being manufactured in Japan and demand for this product is outpacing production capacity.  After consideration was given to expanding in the UK or Czech Republic to site a new plant at one of the company's other global locations, it was decided to construct the new plant at the Tonawanda location which is adjacent to the company's existing operations. 


A new 83,000 sq. ft. manufacturing plant will be constructed in the North Youngmann Commerce Center.  In addition, over $15,000,000 will be expended equipping the plant.
