Hexatronic Group AB (publ.) ("Hexatronic") has, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Blue Diamond Industries, decided to establish a new production facility in Ogden, Utah, in the western part of the US for HDPE conduit used for telecom and power cables. The investment of around 30 MUSD relates to production equipment and infrastructure for establishing the production plant. Production start is expected in the second quarter of 2024.
“We have a very positive view of the US infrastructure market for many years to come. This is especially because of the large infrastructure investments in broadband, electricity grids, roads and railways that will be made through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. With the establishment of the production facility in Ogden, Utah, Blue Diamond Industries will be able to serve customers throughout the United States. It will be the company's fourth factory for duct and pipe in the US. The three existing plants are in Middlesboro in Kentucky, Aubrey in Texas and Clinton in South Carolina. The establishment opens the market in the western parts of the US, a market Blue Diamond Industries was previously unable to serve due to high transportation costs,” says Henrik Larsson Lyon, CEO Hexatronic Group.
