Plant Prefab is opening its third factory to serve as the company’s first automated facility and regional production hub on the east side of the Tejon Ranch Commerce Center, according to GlobeNewswire. The manufacturing facility will produce custom-prefabricated panelized and modular building components as part of Plant Prefab’s patented building system. With specialized materials and advanced engineering, the company will be able to build custom housing 20 to 50 percent faster than traditional building methods while producing up to 30 percent less waste and saving 10 to 25 percent on cost.

Plant Prefab’s design and estimating teams are now engaging projects for the new facility, which expects to begin production in January 2023. The launch of the hub will be well timed to help Plant Prefab accommodate rising demand from a growing list of clients, as production contracts have grown by more than 175 percent in the past year alone. Looking ahead, Plant Prefab expects to replicate its hub-and-spoke production model, allowing it to scale efficiently to meet demand across urban infill markets in other regions across the country – including the East Coast – that are similarly well located and primed to serve large populations.
