PHOENIX — Pre-fab modular housing company Connect Homes is opening a new factory in Mesa.

The announcement came on Thursday. The facility is expected to open in the first quarter in 2024.

“Our new factory will play an integral role in providing elegant, affordable homes to prospective homeowners and shelter for individuals experiencing homelessness across the Mountain West and we are grateful to the City of Mesa for welcoming Connect Homes to the region,” Deborah Casper, CEO of Connect Homes, said in a press release. “We are committed to being a part of the solution to the acute housing shortage in California, Arizona and across the country.”

Connect Homes designs, manufactures, delivers and installs single-family homes across the country. The homes are made of a steel-frame modular design so it’s possible to construct architect-designed homes, semi-custom homes and shelters.

The factory will reportedly be able to manufacture up to 5,000 square feet of housing per week. The company has delivered 122 homes, equaling more than 800 modules, since 2013.

“We’re pleased to welcome housing innovator Connect Homes to Mesa,” Mayor John Giles said in a release. “Cities and towns throughout the United States are working to address the need for a range of housing options, which is a high priority in Mesa. It’s great to see Connect Homes bringing more high-quality, affordable housing options to our market.”
