GAF Energy Plans Georgetown, Texas, Production Operations

GAF Energy, a Standard Industries company and a provider of solar roofing in North America, established manufacturing operations in Georgetown, Texas. The project is expected to create 240 jobs.

The facility will produce the Timberline Solar Energy Shingle, a transformative solar product which integrates with traditional shingles to create a sleek and attractive look for the customer. Full operations are scheduled for the end of the year.

"We're thrilled to be building the future of solar here in Georgetown," said Martin DeBono, President of GAF Energy. "The community has welcomed us with open arms, confirming everything we thought when we made the decision to expand to Texas. We've begun hiring and already have dozens of people ready to make the best solar roofing on the market right here in Georgetown. We firmly believe that manufacturing in America speeds the innovation cycle and allows us to deliver the best product for our customers."

GAF Energy works with North America’s largest roofing and waterproofing manufacturer, GAF, to offer homeowners elegant, roof-integrated solar options through a national network of roofer partners. The company currently develops and assembles its products at its R&D and manufacturing facility in San Jose, California.

"We are pleased GAF Energy selected Georgetown as their destination for their facility," Georgetown Mayor Josh Schroeder added. "Their innovative product is one that will change the market as we know it, and we are excited that it will be developed here in our backyard."
