Coming soon: Dvele showcases coming $80 Million foundry in Butte that could employ hundreds.
A modular home manufacturer held a ceremonial groundbreaking at Butte’s business park Monday to showcase its pledged coming attraction to the Mining City — a foundry the size of six football fields that could employ hundreds.
San Diego-based Dvele (pronounced deh-VELL) hopes to get infrastructure hook-ups and other prep work done this year and begin construction on the factory next spring. The goal is to begin initial operations by January 2025.
The Dvele facility will make modular homes that can be built in months and then shipped out for placement. They can be built at 30% to 40% less cost than traditional houses, the company says.
