Amwood Homes, Inc., a premier panelized custom-home manufacturer, has announced the start of production at its new manufacturing facility in Montezuma.
The plant, which has been under remodel and construction since its purchase in November 2020, recently announced the start of production of roof trusses in March 2021 and floor decks and wall panels this month. The facility currently employs 21 full-time team members, with plans to further grow the team and expand business in Iowa and potential adjacent markets.
“The new Montezuma facility provides the opportunity to significantly expand our production capacity” said Aaron Roush, Amwood Homes’ President.
Amwood’s purchase of the existing 34,000 sq. ft. facility in Montezuma, came after a severe line of storms significantly damaged their Toledo operation. With the new facility’s significant size and excellent condition, the move and conversion has been a smooth transition. The new space provides Amwood with six buildings and more than six acres of land. The primary products that are manufactured at this location are component packages, including wall panels, floor decks, and roof trusses. The facility also features substantial office space and a show room to be utilized by Amwood authorized home builders and their homeowners. In conjunction with the new plant in Montezuma, the company also operates a second manufacturing facility in Madison, Wis.
Chief Executive Officer of Amwood Homes, C. David Hiller, is thrilled about the new facility and the company’s next chapter in Iowa. Hiller states, “We are very committed to our Iowa builders and are excited to be part of the Montezuma community.”
Along with this, Chairman and Owner of Amwood Homes, Doug Scott, notes his excitement, “Our move to Montezuma will provide us with the opportunity for future growth and development within the state of Iowa, as well as other markets.”
Amwood Homes, a family-owned company, is headquartered in Janesville, Wis. and has been in business since 1959. The company’s network of home builders serves locations throughout Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa and Minnesota.
