CertainTeed Plans Bryan, Texas, Manufacturing Plant-Distribution Hub
The facility, located in the Texas Triangle Park, will be the company’s first roofing plant built in the U.S. since 2017, according to local officials. Construction is scheduled for completion in the coming years.
"Our new manufacturing facility and distribution center symbolizes our commitment to our customers in the southern United States, to the State of Texas, and to the City of Bryan and its citizens," said CertainTeed Vice President and General Manager Carmen Bodden. "As a leader in light and sustainable construction, this new facility will ensure our business has the materials necessary to continue serving our customers while remaining focused on minimizing our environmental footprint."
As an incentive a Texas Enterprise Fund grant of $546,000 has been extended to CertainTeed, and the company has also been offered a $1,000 Veteran Created Job Bonus.
"Exceptional global companies, like CertainTeed, are investing in Texas because we offer unmatched business operating advantages, including a world-class business climate, highly skilled workforce, reasonable regulations, and lower taxes," noted Governor Greg Abbott. "Located in the heart of the Texas Triangle, Bryan is a prime location for CertainTeed's new manufacturing and distribution facility. The future of Texas is bright, and I look forward to an ongoing partnership with CertainTeed as we continue to expand opportunities for all Texans."
A subsidiary of France-based multinational Compagnie de Saint Gobain, CertainTeed produces exterior and interior building products.
"The Brazos Valley and CertainTeed are a great fit," added Brazos Valley Economic Development Corporation Chair Seth McKinney. "We share assets and values, including outstanding workforces. From the center of the Texas Triangle megaregion, CertainTeed will reach millions of Texans and Americans with their quality products. It has been a pleasure for us to work with their team, and we offer our continued support as they locate and grow here."
