Nordfab Ducting Will Expand for Better Customer Service

We are excited to announce that we have begun a $5.5 million project to expand our main Nordfab Americas manufacturing facility in Thomasville, NC, in order to provide faster and better customer service.

Expansion of our facility will increase Nordfab Americas manufacturing footprint to 180,000 square feet of production, office, and warehouse space. Included in the project with the additional footage are a rooftop solar array and additional material handling automation.

Our company president, Erik Olshall, stated, “This expansion project helps us to launch our Nordfab Now™ program. When implemented, the Nordfab Now program will allow next day shipment of standard ductwork in dust collection systems designed using our award-winning installation design software, Quick-Fit Visual®.” Learn more about Quick-Fit Visual

The planned rooftop solar system of 1,050 kW will produce an estimated 1,417 Megawatt hours of electricity per year. This will cover roughly 47% of the estimated energy consumption at this location and will also reduce Nordfab's carbon footprint by 1,004 metric tons. This is the equivalent of 218 passenger cars being taken off the road or the energy needed to power 121 homes for a year. By installing over 1 Megawatt of solar, Nordfab will have one of the top 5 largest rooftop solar installations in the Triad. Not only do we sell a sustainable ducting product which is easily re-used, we will be manufacturing it in a far more sustainable way.

We will be adding approximately 25 jobs and will begin hiring for some of them immediately. Nordfab is working diligently to be the Employer of Choice in the Triad area. See our Careers page

We are grateful to the state of North Carolina for assisting our growth project by providing grant funds. Read the North Carolina governor's announcement regarding our project on the NC Department of Commerce site.
