Saint-Gobain announced Monday that its building products subsidiary CertainTeed LLC has commenced operations at its new production facility for the STONEfacade stone veneer system in Quakertown, PA. The company said the site boosts its capacity for the solution “ten-fold.”
“We’re excited to bring our new STONEfacade products to more customers around the country, and we’re proud to add another American factory to our manufacturing portfolio,” Joe Bondi, vice president and general manager of CertainTeed Sidings Product Group, in a company release. “Our STONEfacade products allow siding contractors to offer more solutions to their clients, while ultimately saving installation time and costs without compromising on aesthetics. Our new plant in Quakertown will help our customers capitalize on this innovative product and ride the wave of increased demand for stone siding products.”
Saint-Gobain’s product can be installed in less time and with fewer materials compared to traditional stone. The screw-in panels require no mortar and features an integrated rainscreen to control moisture and improve performance. Products are available in several color palettes.
