Hillsboro, Texas – Johns Manville has broken ground for a new polyisocyanate insulation board products in Texas. The Hillsboro site is about 60 miles south of Dallas.
The company chose Hillsboro because of its proximity to a number of key customers in the south-west of the US. The site will produce board and act as a distribution hub. It will employ 50 people.
'There are growth opportunities in the south-west for polyiso products,' said Joe Smith, president of the company's roofing systems business. 'Three of the 10 largest cities in the country are a short drive from Hillsboro, and some of our largest roofing contractors are located within the service area.'
The plant is scheduled to be complete by mid-2021.
