CertainTeed Expands Quakertown, Pennsylvania, Manufacturing Plant
According to state officials, the company has committed to investing approximately $8 million into the project. This is CertainTeed’s first plant where the company will manufacture STONEfaçade, an innovative stone veneer system, made with concrete, that can be quickly and easily installed by any vinyl siding contractor without any special equipment or masonry skills.
“We’re excited to bring our new STONEfaçade products to more customers around the country, and we’re grateful for the continued interest in and support of our business from our home state of Pennsylvania,” said Joe Bondi, Vice President and General Manager of CertainTeed Sidings Product Group. “We’re excited for the future of this innovative, game-changing, American made product.”
CertainTeed received a funding proposal from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development for a $200,000 Pennsylvania First grant, $90,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits (JCTC) to be distributed upon the creation of the new jobs, and $22,200 in funding for workforce training.
“CertainTeed is one of Pennsylvania’s legacy companies, calling the commonwealth home for more than a century, and we are thrilled to see its continued expansion,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “My administration is committed to supporting businesses like this across the state, helping them to grow their operations, better serve their customers, and provide new jobs and opportunities to the surrounding community.”
CertainTeed is a North American manufacturer of building materials for both commercial and residential construction and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Saint-Gobain SA, based in Paris.
