Saint-Gobain, through its building products subsidiary CertainTeed LLC, today announced that the company intends to build a new, state-of-the art manufacturing facility and distribution center in Texas Triangle Park (TTP) in Bryan.
Saint-Gobain continues to implement its global Grow and Impact strategy, which includes expanding its presence in key, fast growing markets. The Bryan facility will be the first new construction of a CertainTeed roofing plant in the United States since 2017.
“Our new manufacturing facility and distribution center symbolizes our commitment to our customers in the southern United States, to the State of Texas and to the City of Bryan and its citizens,” said Carmen Bodden, Vice President and General Manager of CertainTeed Roofing. “As the leader in light and sustainable construction, this new facility will ensure our business has the materials necessary to continue serving our customers while remaining focused on minimizing our environmental footprint.”
The project is supported with local and state incentives to facilitate the development of this state-of-the-art facility that will offer excellent employment opportunities for the local workforce. Construction toward the distribution center is expected to begin in 2023 with completion of the entire project expected several years after. The project is expected to create 130 new jobs and approximately $140 million in capital investment.
“Exceptional global companies, like CertainTeed, are investing in Texas because we offer unmatched business operating advantages, including a world-class business climate, highly skilled workforce, reasonable regulations, and lower taxes,” said Governor Abbott. “Located in the heart of the Texas Triangle, Bryan is a prime location for CertainTeed’s new manufacturing and distribution facility. The future of Texas is bright, and I look forward to an ongoing partnership with CertainTeed as we continue to expand opportunity for all Texans.”
TTP is a 1,000-acre, rail-served industrial park along Highway 6 and is designated as part of Foreign Trade Zone #84. TTP is owned by the City of Bryan-Brazos County Economic Development Foundation, a public partnership between the City of Bryan and Brazos County.
“We are proud that CertainTeed recognized Bryan as the place to grow their global business and we welcome them,” said Mayor Gutierrez. “Past investments and partnerships in TTP have helped bring this world-class company to our community that will provide for tremendous economic diversification and impact.” “We’re thrilled to have this environmentally-responsible partner coming to our city. Their presence will benefit not only the City of Bryan and Brazos County but also Bryan ISD, our local workforce and the entire Brazos Valley.”
