Modular Builder Expanding Factory Footprint to Phoenix Area

Palo Alto, CA-based S2A Modular plans to build a $25 million facility in the Phoenix area in 2021. The sustainable building manufacturer that produces modular homes, apartments, hotels and other buildings is nearing a deal to acquire land needed for a plant, though it has not yet disclosed the specific location.

The factory is slated to include five buildings, ranging from manufacturing buildings encompassing two factory lines, as well as office and showroom space to showcase the firm’s product lines. The company produces small accessory dwelling units to luxury homes.

S2A Modular’s first two factories in California are slated to come online by Q4 2020. The company is planning other factories in factories in markets such as Seattle, Denver, Dallas and Washington, D.C., and by 2023 the firm plans to have 35 locations nationwide. The facilities are capable of producing 2,000 units per year.
