Chelsea Building Products finalized the purchase of a 30-acre plot of land in Madison, Pa., located in Westmoreland County. Formally a Westinghouse Property, about 30 minutes east of Pittsburgh, the company plans to build a 228,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in addition to its headquarters in Oakmont, Pa.

The facility — to be known as Chelsea Building Products East — will support the manufacturing operation to extrude PVC-based door and window profiles. It will also incorporate a blending facility that will supply the PVC compound to Chelsea Building Products East and Chelsea Building Products South in Greenville, Texas.

“Chelsea Building Products is looking forward to commencing with its aggressive expansion plans and building a second facility in Pennsylvania. With the plant being strategically located by major highways and rail access, we’re looking forward to continuously improving efficiency and getting products to customers quickly and easily,” said Peter Dewil, president and CEO of Chelsea Building Products.

The company plans to break ground on the new development in 2025 and is expected to employ 100-150 workers within five years.
