Simpson pressure washer parent adds fifth U.S. factory

The FNA Group, based in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin, will be expanding its manufacturing and distribution footprint with a new 400,000 square-foot manufacturing facility in Mesquite, Texas.

Operations at the new Mesquite facility will focus on consumer and professional product lines, utilizing improved assembly line designs and cutting-edge robotic technology to maximize efficiency. FNA Group is the parent company of pressure washer brands Simpson and Delco, among others.

Scheduled to be fully operational by August of 2020, this new facility will provide an estimated 300 jobs to the Mesquite area.

The construction of the Mesquite facility is part of a reinvestment and expansion plan that includes the modernization of the assembly, fabrication, and paint departments at FNA’s Decatur, Arkansas, location.

According to William Alexander, FNA’s Executive V.P. of Sales & Marketing, “Our key goals are to continuously improve quality, and drive out waste while increasing productivity and throughput.”

 “This expansion represents a significant capital investment that reflects our company’s commitment to meet the growing demand for innovation and performance in the pressure washer and power equipment industries. This new facility will allow The FNA Group to grow, adapt, increase our employee talent base, and better serve our customers.”

Founded by Gus Alexander in 1988, The FNA Group is a leading manufacturer of electric and gasoline powered pressure washers. Throughout its 30-year history, The FNA Group has experienced many important milestones including the acquisition of both the Simpson and Delco brands in 2006.

In addition to the new Mesquite, TX facility, The FNA Group currently has state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Pleasant Prairie, Siloam Springs, Arkansas, and Knoxville, Tennessee.
