HFT has secured a contract to upgrade Owens Corning’s 300,000ft2 fibreglass production plant in Nephi, UT, USA.

The focus of the project is to expand the plant’s capabilities to be able to produce a broader range of fiberglass building insulation in the future, and will include modernisations and upgrades throughout the production line. It is set for completion in March 2023.

HFT’s work on the Nephi facility will include furnace, forming, civil/foundations, buildings, offices and utilities, as well as relocation of production equipment from another Owens Corning facility to the Nephi site.

This project highlights HFT’s capabilities to execute complex, multi-discipline projects as a single-source solution.

Bringing expertise in not only the fiberglass process line, but also the site/civil, buildings and MEP, HFT will provide a single-source fully integrated project solution, reducing risk and increasing project efficiency.

The Owens Corning Nephi plant produces unbonded loosefill fibreglass insulation and employs about 40 workers.

HFT President and CEO Mark Piedmonte, said: “This alliance with a company of Owens Corning’s stature highlights the quality of work HFT is known for throughout the industries we serve.

“The range of plant upgrades we’re undertaking is broad. When we finish, Owens Corning’s production capabilities here will be significantly expanded.”
