Parsippany, New Jersey – Roofing manufacturer GAF has expanded its commercial roofing operations. Production of polyiso EnergyGuard products has begun at a new facility at the company’s site in New Columbia, Pennsylvania, adding 50 new jobs.
Construction of the 23,000m2 facility started in 2019. The company plans to ramp up production over the coming months, reaching full capacity once the raw materials become more readily available.
‘We're thrilled to officially begin commercial polyiso insulation production in New Columbia," said John Altmeyer, executive chairman of GAF Commercial Roofing. ‘While supply chain issues worsened by the ongoing pandemic have created industry-wide shortages in the raw material needed to manufacture polyiso, our investment in this new facility enables GAF to maximise manufacturing capacity to meet demand and puts us in a prime position to increase capacity as soon as supply is restored.’
GAF also manufactures EnergyGuard polyiso insulation products in Cedar City, Utah; Gainesville, Texas; and Statesboro, Georgia.
