Hoover Treated Wood Products breaks ground on new manufacturing facility

FAIRFIELD, Texas — The City of Fairfield, Fairfield Economic Development Corporation (EDC) and Hoover Treated Wood Products (HTWP) broke ground on a new $9 million, state of the art wood treating facility coming to the community late 2023. The plant – owned and operated by HTWP – will treat fire-retardant wood products to be used in new construction buildings throughout the region.

The product, which is used to construct framing, sheathing for roofs and walls, will primarily be used in new multifamily and commercial construction.

“We are thrilled to expand our operations into Texas to service the booming commercial and residential construction industries,” said Dave Gillrie, CEO, HTWP. “Fairfield is the ideal choice for our new facility which will feature state-of-the-art technology and bring terrific career opportunities. We truly appreciate the warm reception we’ve received from the city and look forward to deepening our connection to this vibrant community.”
