Construction is underway on the new 577K square foot factory with production slated to begin in 2019.
Katerra’s next generation plant will be an advanced manufacturing facility with significantly more automation including fully automated wood frame wall production lines, automated floor lines, automated cabinet and finish areas, automated roof truss lines, an automated window line and a light gauge steel production line.
The factory will be able to produce, on an annual basis, the equivalent of 12,500 multifamily units and Katerra’s manufacturing presence in Tracy, CA will add more than 500 jobs.
The Tracy factory will produce building components including:
- Wall panels
- Floor systems
