Special-Lite is now producing fire cores for all of our fire-rated doors in the recently acquired Benton Harbor facility.
Changes in the fire core marketplace have been creating disruption and related market uncertainty. The changes in the market have resulted in considerable increases in pricing, as well as delays in production and delivery of fire-rated doors industry-wide. To create stability and reliability for customers, Special-Lite has invested heavily in the new facility, as well as production-related capabilities. These investments allow continued delivery of products to our Special-Lite customers, in a reasonable time frame, at a competitive price.
By the beginning of April, all cores for Special-Lite fire-rated doors will be manufactured in the new Benton Harbor facility.
