DUNA-USA Buys Land with An Eye Toward Growth


Baytown, Texas-based DUNA-USA, a manufacturer of rigid polyurethane and polyisocyanurate systems—its CORAFOAM product line being one example—announces the addition of a new low-density production line and the recent purchase of an additional six acres of land at its U.S. headquarters, just outside Houston.

According to the company, the new production line offers enhanced quality in the form of reduced waste, optimized block profiles, increased product consistency, and augmented production controls and safety capabilities.

“DUNA is continuously focused on providing the highest levels of quality and service to our customers, and the recent land purchase and production line addition reflect our commitment to supporting our customers,” says Marta Brozzi, president of the DUNA Group. “We are excited at the opportunities presented with the new land, and anticipate beginning construction in the near future.”

DUNA-USA’s Baytown location has undergone multiple changes over the past two years, including the addition of two new production lines and a state-of-the-art fabrication building and the implementation of a dedicated department to streamline packaging and shipping.

Aside from Baytown, DUNA-USA’s other location is in Ludington, Michigan. Both U.S. locations are also undergoing ISO:9001 certification, with completion scheduled for this Fall 2019.

“Maintaining a high level of support for our customers has always been a top priority,” says Andrea Benedetti, CEO of DUNA-USA. “With the completion of our recent expansions, and the addition of critical technology and equipment, customer demand and growth opportunities have increased greatly. Purchasing additional land will prove vital to streamlining our operations and consolidating our production, fabrication, packaging and storage processes.”

DUNA-USA is a division of Italy-based DUNA Corradini S.P.S., which was founded in 1957.
