Allura reopens Indiana facility
Building products manufacturer Allura has reopened its 438,000 square-foot manufacturing facility in Terre Haute, Ind.
The plant produces exterior siding, trim, soffit, and shakes for new residential construction in the Midwest. Shut down in 2014, the factory employs 60 full-time workers. “The lights are back on,” said Allura CEO Jessica Navascues.
The 95-acre property also includes a 9,152 square-foot office building along with railroad spars and storage areas.
Terre Haute Mayor Duke Bennett, Terre Haute Chamber President David Haynes, representatives from Allura’s parent company Elementia and representatives from several homebuilding companies joined Navascues at the ceremony.
“We welcome back Allura with open arms,” Bennett said. “Companies in Indiana make products for the entire nation and we’re certainly thrilled to help do our part in Terre Haute.”
Allura also operates manufacturing facilities in North Carolina, Oregon and Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. The company specializes in fiber cement home building products include natural-looking siding, shakes and shingles, panels and soffit available as an alternative to wood, vinyl and other traditional building materials.
