INDIANAPOLIS-Firestone Building Products Co. is increasing TPO production with the construction of a third manufacturing line at its TPO plant in Wellford, S.C. When completed in the first quarter of 2006, the new line will approximately double the company's current TPO roofing membrane capacity.
The 80,000-square-foot Wellford plant produces Firestone UltraPly TPO roofing membranes and accessories. The expansion marks Firestone's second investment in the Wellford, S.C., facility. In 2003, approximately 60,000 square feet were added to the site to better accommodate demand.
