North American Specialty Laminations Plans Roanoke County, Virginia, Mid-Atlantic Operations Center

North American Specialty Laminations, the leader in differentiated lamination solutions to the building products industry, will establish a mid-Atlantic operation in Roanoke County, Virginia. The $2 million project is expected to create 44 jobs.

The new 57,000-square-foot production facility will be located at 5185 Benois Road and will serve NASL’s East/Southeast customers.

“With our extensive analysis, we selected Virginia for its consistent pro-business stance, progressive supporting programs, and skilled workforce in the greater Roanoke area,” said Doug Rende, CEO of North American Specialty Laminations.

The Virginia Economic Development Partnership (VEDP) worked with Roanoke County to secure the project and will support job creation through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program (VJIP), which provides consultative services and funding to companies creating new jobs in order to support employee recruitment and training activities.

As a business incentive supporting economic development, VJIP reduces the human resource costs of new and expanding companies. VJIP is state-funded, demonstrating Virginia’s commitment to enhancing job opportunities for citizens.

“NASL is a strong addition to the Roanoke region’s booming manufacturing industry and will benefit from abundant utilities, lower electric rates, and a strong and dedicated workforce,” added Secretary of Commerce and Trade Caren Merrick.

North American Specialty Laminations (NASL) is a profile wrapping, and specialty fabrication manufacturing company serving the Window, Door, Cabinet, Furniture and Architectural Millwork industries. The company is headquartered in Osseo, Wisconsin and operates production locations serving all U.S. and Canadian regions. NASL is a portfolio company of the Boston based private equity investment firm Building Industry Partners (BIP).
