Eagle Roofing Products, the industry leader in concrete roof tile manufacturing and innovation, started a significant expansion project to the company’s manufacturing plant in Sumterville, Florida.
In addition to the construction underway at the Sumterville plant, Eagle Roofing Products will begin construction of a new West Palm Beach stocking facility to better assist its southeast Florida customers.
Set to be completed Spring 2020, the Sumterville project includes a 90,000 square foot addition to the plant that will provide added storage for raw materials and for Eagle Roofing Products’ expanding component offering, which includes the new self-adhered underlayment Eagle Armor by APOC. A fourth high-speed production line will also be added to the location. This will allow the company to increase production of concrete roof tile, enhancing capacity by nearly 30 percent.
“Enhancing capacity is a two-step process,” explained John Campbell, Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
“We began with adding 40,000 new flat tile molds to the manufacturing plant to add greater flexibility and meet the exceedingly popular architectural trends that support flat tile growth. The second phase is the construction of the fourth line,” he added. “The equipment is built and we are currently preparing the raw material delivery systems to support the new line.”
A division of Burlingame Industries, Eagle Roofing Products has grown to four manufacturing plants, five design centers and a workforce of 700 employees.
As the largest USA made, USA owned concrete roof tile manufacturer in the United States, Eagle Roofing Products specializes in providing concrete tile roofing solutions for the building industry.
