LONDON, ONTARIO, CANADA - Hanwha L&C USA, a leading manufacturer of innovative surfacing products, recently held a celebratory event to commemorate the grand opening of its Canadian manufacturing facility. In keeping with Hanwha’s ongoing commitment to environmentally friendly production, the 200,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility in Canada will utilize the latest environmentally responsible manufacturing processes. The facility’s first phase of production will be the manufacturing of HanStone™ Fine Quartz surfaces for kitchen countertops, vanities and other surfaces for U.S. residential and commercial markets. The manufacturing facility will also be equipped with the most advanced Breton™ Technology, resulting in the production of the most sophisticated looks or designs of natural quartz, in an array of colors, Hanwha reports.

With the initial investment of $70 plus million for the construction of the facility, Hanwha is demonstrating a significant commitment to better service, not only for U.S. architectural and design industries, but also global markets in an eco-friendly manner, reports the company. The new manufacturing plant will enable Hanwha to meet the growing demand for its premium product lines with greater production capabilities coupled with a premier distribution network.

“Our new facility being built in London, Ontario, will be the most advanced, nature-friendly manufacturing plant in the Fine Quartz Surface business, and will produce top-quality HanStone products for our customers,” stated Daniel Yu, President and CEO for Hanwha L & C USA. “We are confident that our HanStone™ Fine Quartz Surface and Hanwha L&C USA sustainable business will continue to grow and be successful in North America with continual strong support from the architectural and design industry segments.”

The Canadian plant investment and recent USGBC (U.S. Green Business Council) membership demonstrates Hanwha L&C USA’s commitment to providing superior surfacing solutions for sustainable designs and construction applications. In order to continuously supply the U.S. market with superior, green surface solutions, Hanwha L&C USA has begun preparing for future expansions, with plans to increase the Canadian facility by 180,000 square feet, investing an additional $40 million.
