Fabral Metal Wall and Roof Systems has opened a new manufacturing plant in Salt Lake City. The facility replaces the manufacturer’s existing plant in Cedar City, Utah, providing more space, enhanced features, and easier access to its core customer base and a deeper labor pool. The new plant, one of eight the company operates around the U.S., will primarily manufacture Fabral’s post-frame product lines, including Grandrib panels, 7/8- and 2 1/2-inch corrugated panels, Mighti-Rib panels, and accessories such as flashing and trim.
“We are thrilled to be relocating to Salt Lake City, as the area will not only provide us greater access to a diverse workforce but will greatly improve our ability to service our customers and partners,” says Brian Below, CEO of Fabral Metal Wall and Roof Systems. “It’s part of our continued investment to improve safety for our employees, modernize our manufacturing processes, and ensure our products are being built to the highest quality standards.”
At nearly 60,000 square feet, the Salt Lake City plant is significantly larger than the Cedar City location, increasing production space for improved ergonomics and greater output.
In addition to the employees relocating from Cedar City, Fabral’s Salt Lake City plant will include 15 new positions.
“The move allows us to tap into a larger pool of talent and skilled labor here in Salt Lake,” says Joe Peters, director of Operations for Fabral. “It also reinforces Fabral’s commitment to safety and providing a first-class working environment that supports employee health, wellness, and increased productivity.”
“The opening of the Salt Lake City facility is a great milestone for Fabral as we celebrate 55 years as a metal cladding supplier,” says Mark Hansen, vice president of Sales for Fabral. “This new facility will vastly expand our production capacities and enable us to better support the needs of our customers in this significant and growing market.”
