Fabwel, a division of Owens Corning, announced during last week’s Louisville trade show the opening of a new science and technology center in Elkhart, Ind.
According to a press release, the 16,000-square-foot research and development facility will open in January and provide application engineering, various testing functions at an on-site laboratory, process prototyping and material qualification.
Fabwel said that “all activities will focus on enhancing the current Fabwel product portfolio, which ranges from base materials to RV exterior and interior sub systems such as walls, floors and doors.”
In addition, the new center will be in close proximity to several of the company’s key customers.
“As the RV industry continues to grow and prosper, Fabwel is committed to supporting RV manufacturers by creating relationships that help our customers succeed through innovative solutions, superior customer service and quality products,” said Chuck Jerasa, Fabwel general manager.
