Fox Blocks to open new facilities in Texas and Missouri

Fox Blocks is expanding its manufacturing operations to Keller, Texas, and Nixa, Missouri, according to a company statement. Fox Blocks creates insulated concrete forms (ICF) and now has 18 manufacturing facilities in the U.S. and Canada.

Because demand has increased significantly, Fox Blocks acquired companies Reward Wall Systems and ARXX earlier this year. The company also recently expanded in Becker, Minnesota, and Narazeth, Pennsylvania, Area Development reported.

The addition of the two facilities in Texas and Missouri will allow Fox Blocks to meet the demand for heavy commercial applications and deliver the products to their clients in a timely manner, the company stated.

The new Texas plant should be online by July, and the Missouri plant should be operational by the end of June. Both plants are in pre-production testing stages and have received dedicated tooling and on-site quality assurance and control testing and training.

"The Texas plant has been a long time coming, as the market potential is enormous," Vice President of Sales Mike Kennaw said. "We are now the only ICF company manufacturing there. This allows for Fox Blocks products right in the heart of the Texas, made by Texans for Texans."

Expanding companies should work with manufacturing recruiters to find the most skilled candidates for their open positions.
