Johns Manville plans expansion at Alabama factory

Johns Manville announced plans today to add a second production line for commercial roofing material at its Scottsboro plant, following on the heels of a capacity expansion project completed earlier this year.

Denver, Colorado-based Johns Manville said the new production line will allow it to meet rising demand for the thermoplastic polyolefin roof membrane, or TPO, from roofing contractors, consultants and building owners.

“This significant investment continues JM’s long-standing commitment to our customers, the industry, our employees and the communities in which we serve,” CEO Mary Rhinehart said.

JM invested $30 million to open the Scottsboro facility in 2008, according to a company statement at the time. Earlier this year, it completed a capacity expansion project that was designed to increase production of TPO at the Jackson County plant.
