SO.F.TER. USA stands on a total area of 21 acres (85,000 square meters). The initial building phase led to the construction of a plant measuring 100,000 square feet (9,300 square meters) with an annual production capacity of 50 million pounds (23,000 metric tons) and with an investment of USD 20.0 million (EUR 16.0 million). The long term project, to be completed in stages, will expand facilities up to 250,000 square feet (23,000 square meters) with a total capacity of 200 million pounds (90,000 tons) and 200 employees.

In addition to a broad portfolio of products, SO.F.TER. USA will also provide its customers with a full range of engineering services including Moldflow, 3-D Modeling, FEM (Finite Element Modeling) and ANSYS Stress Analysis. These services will be performed at the US site and will be available to customers along with processing support at the customer’s plant sites.

With the opening of the SO.F.TER. USA headquarters, the SO.F.TER. GROUP further strengthens its presence in the Americas, where it can now offer a complete range of products in synergy with its manufacturing plants in Mexico and Brazil.
