Sunpro is expanding its services in St. George, Utah, by constructing a 25-acre facility in the area. The new location will feature buildings dedicated to the four core product offerings at Sunpro: trusses, millwork & doors, garage doors & insulation, and lumber.
The addition of space for trusses, not previously found at Sunpro in St. George, will help cement the company as the leading building materials supplier in the area. Already the largest lumber supplier in Southern Utah, the new facility will help lower costs for customers from St. George to Las Vegas due to shorter delivery distances.
In order to increase efficiency and maintain its status as a responsible business, Sunpro is utilizing new technologies and innovations in the construction of its facilities. The buildings are being constructed with bonded and pre-insulated panels to preserve energy efficiency. Inside, state-of-the-art equipment will be installed throughout with ample room for storage and future company growth.
Some examples of the state-of-the-art equipment include a new underground trench and conveyor belt system and a new automated truss manufacturing system. The conveyor belt system will be installed to help remove smaller cut pieces into a single collection point, saving employees time and effort. The new truss system, called the Wizard, will streamline production processes and enable Sunpro to produce trusses much faster and more efficiently, better meeting demand from customers.
Additionally, customers will also be able to pick up their orders more easily than ever before. Because space is limited at the current location in St. George, orders can take time to locate and extract. At the new facilities, ample storage space for orders is being added to manage expected continued growth, and two-way roads and multiple docks will make the delivery and pick up process as simple as possible.
Work on the project will be completed in two phases. Customers can expect to enter the new facilities following the completion of phase one, which is currently scheduled for mid-2023.
