YKK AP America to Expand in Texas
November 7, 2013
YKK AP America announced plans to expand the company's presence in the Texas market during the recent Texas Society of Architects Convention, according to a Nov. 7 release.
In the spring of 2014, YKK AP intends to open a new production, distribution and logistics facility located in the Dallas/Fort Worth metropolitan area. The new facility will exceed YKK AP’s current footprint in the state and allow for an increase in local product production and technical support services, according to the release.
“Texas is a strong market and focal point for YKK AP America as we look to expand in the local area as well as the western United States,” said Oliver Stepe, senior vice president, in the release. “The new facility,with expanded production and customer support functions, will allow us to strengthen service, shorten lead-times and improve transportation services throughout the Texas region and to points further west.”
