LaCantina Expands with New Facility

May 22, 2012

To meet growing demand for its folding door systems, LaCantina Doors recently expanded by moving its corporate headquarters and manufacturing operations into a new 67,000-square-foot facility in Oceanside, Calif. Originating in Australia 18 years ago, LaCantina reports it was the first company to establish manufacturing operations dedicated to folding door systems in the United States.

Its new facility provides expanded capacity for its line of wood, aluminum and hybrid doors, reports Matt Power, president. The move also allowed the company to engage in more efficient space planning, which will enable it to offer shorter lead times, better quality and a safer, healthier work environment, he states.

"We have manufactured thousands of door systems for projects throughout North America and internationally," Power says. "This new state-of-the-art facility continues our company’s well-deserved reputation for product innovation and manufacturing excellence."

"We have designed the facility around the product. We have engineered and developed proprietary machinery and processes to efficiently produce our unique designs and innovations," adds Lee Maughan, general manager. "Optimal capacity, maximum precision and consistent quality are achieved with the use of cutting-edge equipment, including CNC machine centers and engineered fixtures and tooling."
