New GAF Cedar City, UT, Manufacturing Facility Starts Shipping TPO

GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, has started shipments from its new thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) and polyisocyanurate (ISO) plant in Cedar City, Utah. Construction of the state-of-the-art site was announced in spring of 2013; it houses GAF’s third TPO and third ISO production lines (and it’s the company’s second combined TPO/ISO facility). TPO began shipping from Cedar City on August 1 and ISO products are expected to begin shipping in early 2015.

 

The 541,000-square-foot plant produces the full line of GAF TPO products, including EverGuard® TPO and EverGuard Extreme® TPO, and it will manufacture both ISO roof insulation and residential sheathing. In addition, the plant will include a new training center for CARE (the Center for the Advancement of Roofing Excellence), to support the continued and growing demand for their training classes. 

 

“Our venture in Cedar City is an example of GAF’s continued strategic investment in the commercial roofing industry,” stated Gerry Messina, GAF’s executive director of commercial marketing. “The facility will give us the ability to better service our customers throughout the country.” 

 

An American-owned company with American-made products, GAF is proud to create additional jobs in the U.S. There are currently 40 employees at the plant, with an additional 10-15 expected. The company also produces TPO at its Mount Vernon, IN, and Gainesville, TX, facilities.

About GAF 

Founded in 1886, GAF is the largest roofing manufacturer in North America. The company’s products include a comprehensive portfolio of steep-slope and commercial roofing systems, which are supported by an extensive national network of factory-certified contractors. Its success is driven by its commitment to Advanced Quality, Industry Expertise, and Solutions Made Simple. GAF was the first roofing manufacturer to offer a Lifetime limited warranty on all of its laminated shingles, which then evolved with the introduction of the GAF Lifetime Roofing System by extending the Lifetime coverage beyond just the roofing shingles.  

With a focus on social responsibility, GAF developed Advanced Protection® Shingle Technology, providing superior durability and wind resistance while reducing the use of natural resources. The company also developed single-ply and asphaltic roofing membranes with superior durability and high reflectivity to meet the most rigorous industry standards while helping commercial property owners and designers reduce energy consumption.

GAF also supports the roofing industry through CARE, the Center for the Advancement of Roofing Excellence, which has provided education to over 125,000 professionals.
