Demilec to add 55 jobs with expansion

Demilec (USA) LLC Boisbriand, December 15th, 2010

Spray-foam insulation manufacturer Demilec USA LLC of Arlington has bought a 224,000-square-foot building where it will expand an environmentally friendly product line and add as many as 55 employees over the next two years. Demilec currently employs 95 people in two buildings totaling about 50,000 square feet at 2925 and 2901 Galleria Drive in Arlington, said Dave Lall, general manager and vice president. The company will add 40 to 55 jobs over the next couple of years, including manufacturing positions, engineers and technicians.

Demilec has purchased the former Siemens Dematic manufacturing/distribution facility at 3315 E. Division Street nearby. The purchase price was not disclosed. The building and 16.4 acres of land are appraised at about $2.3 million, according to the Tarrant Appraisal District. The company initially will put $5 million worth of building improvements and equipment into the facility and then another $5 million or so within two years, Lall said.

Demilec will keep its existing facilities and operate out of them also. The new building will allow Demilec to boost production to handle product demand, which has grown by 40 percent annually for the past two years in terms of pounds of insulation sold, Lall said. He said he expects demand to grow at an even faster rate as the economy improves and recognition of the importance of environmentally friendlier products increases, he said.

The privately held company does not disclose its revenue or specifics about sales. We are seeing substantial demand growth in a down economy, and we’re waiting to see what it’s going to be when this economy turns around,” Lall said. “That’s why we bought such a big building. We’re gearing up for it.”
