LE Surfaces has purchased property in South Korea and will immediately commence construction on its state of the art quartz production facility. Due to tariff concerns on quartz slabs manufactured in China and imported into the USA, LE Korea committed to continue servicing the North American market by building capacity outside of China in the stable economic country of South Korea with whom the United States enjoy free trade.
The state of the art facility will commence with 3 production lines and plans on increasing the capacity of the plant throughout 2019 and beyond. Initial production is scheduled for Spring 2019. LE North America, a joint venture between LE Surfaces and US Surfaces, will be the sole marketing and distribution company for products imported into North America.
