Hoover Treated Wood Products has broken ground on a new $9-milliion, state-of-the-art wood treating facility coming in Fairfield, Tx.

Expected to begin production late this year, the plant—owned and operated by Hoover—will treat fire-retardant wood products to be used in new construction buildings throughout the region.

“We are thrilled to expand our operations into Texas to service the booming commercial and residential construction industries,” said CEO Dave Gillrie. “Fairfield is the ideal choice for our new facility which will feature state-of-the-art technology and bring terrific career opportunities..”

As the largest manufacturer of fire-retardant wood products in the U.S., Hoover plans to hire at least 50 full-time employees in the first five years of operation.

It will be Hoover’s first operation in Texas.
