Building and specialty products manufacturer Johns Manville started construction work this month on a new production facility for polyiso products in Hillsboro, TX, the company announced in a release Tuesday.
The facility will produce ENRGY 3 roof insulation, ProtectoR HD high density cover board, AP Foil Faced Foam sheathing and GoBoard tile backer. A JM roofing distribution center will also be built at the site.
“We continue to invest in our business, customers and communities,” Joe Smith, president of Roofing Systems for Johns Manville, said in a statement. “Increasing the availability of our products while creating jobs is a win-win.”
Johns Manville expects the new site to become operational by mid-2022. Over 50 new jobs will be created with the opening of the Hillsboro plant.
Plans for the Hillsboro facility were first announced in January, Powder & Bulk Solids reported. The company said it was initiating the project in response to the strong construction market in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
