Hazleton, Pennsylvania, Jan. 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Green construction technology company Nexii Building Solutions Inc. (Nexii) is on track to open the company’s first production facility in the U.S. in Hazleton, Penn. in Spring 2021. The plant will be operated by Pennsylvania’s John Wolfington and NEXUS-1 through Nexii’s Certified Manufacturing program, and will produce green building and retrofit products using Nexii’s breakthrough process and proprietary material, Nexiite.

Nexii entered into a licensed manufacturing agreement with John Wolfington through his NEXUS-1 entity in order to grow the company quickly, manufacture building products at scale and deploy Nexii’s innovative approach to sustainable design, manufacturing and construction, using its proprietary material, Nexiite. NEXUS-1 is working with the city of Hazleton, the Governor’s action team, NEPA Alliance and CAN DO, Inc. to support financing, job creation and training capital toward the opening of the plant.
