James Hardie Building Products Expands Tacoma, Washington, Campus

James Hardie Building Products Inc., the leader in fiber cement siding, will expand its manufacturing plant in Tacoma, Washington.

The expansion will be a separate 400,000 sq. ft. facility adjacent to the existing plant that is expected to be completed next Spring.

With its expansion the company expects to add more than 100 new employees across a variety of skillsets for its expanded manufacturing facility. Once all hiring is complete for the expanded facility, staff is expected to grow to more than 240 associates.

The Tacoma plant currently manufactures both interior and exterior products that service all climate zones. These include more than eight different product families, which equates to more than 120 varieties of James Hardie products.

"James Hardie is a safety-focused company that honors and celebrates our employees in numerous ways," said Brian Lee, Tacoma Plant Manager. "First and foremost, we offer highly competitive pay and benefits packages, and a commitment to grow our people through training and education."

He noted that most of James Hardie's management is "home grown" in that more than 85 percent come up through the company.
