Aurora, CO, Sept. 30, 2013 — Uzin-Utz AG, the parent company of UFloor Systems, recently announced it is planning to build its first U.S. dry mortar plant in Dover, Del., in a new 55,000 square foot facility. 

”We selected Dover because of its central location to both our sales markets and its proximity to quality raw material suppliers,” said Philipp Utz, president of Uzin Utz Manufacturing North America.

The new plant will also be home to an R&D center and an applications area for testing and customer training. 

The company said it will invest a total of $9.5 million for this new production plant that will manufacture floor self-leveling and patching compounds already available in the U.S., but which are currently imported from Germany.
