indieDwell, a manufacturer of modular affordable housing begins production at its factory in Pueblo, CO on July 6. This is the company’s second U.S. location. Announced in October 2019, the company completed improvements at its downtown location, on N. Elizabeth Street, at the end of June. Initial staffing levels will be around 100 employees by year-end and growing to nearly 200 as the company adds production lines in early 2021.
Ron Francis, the factory’s General Manager, said “We’re thrilled to be officially starting operations in Pueblo. At maximum capacity we will produce approximately 300,000 square feet of affordable housing annually for the local and regional market while creating well paying jobs, learning a trade and having some fun.”
Initial projects emerging from the Pueblo factory include a sober living facility for the Southeast Health Group and a project for NeighborWorks Southern Colorado. indieDwell builds partnerships with foundations, non-profits, housing authorities and like minded developers to bring healthy, durable, sustainable, and energy efficient housing to local markets. In Colorado, partnerships with the Colorado Health Foundation, the Colorado Trust, the City of Pueblo, Pueblo Economic Development Corporation, Gary Community Investments, and The Colorado Governor’s Office of Economic Development and International Trade, helped bring indieDwell to Pueblo.
With limits on public gatherings, the company plans to host a public welcoming and open house this Fall or such time as local health officials determine it will be safe to do so.
