GREENVILLE, Ill. -- Carlisle Construction Materials (CCM), a division of Carlisle Companies, is pleased to announce plans to establish a PVC roofing membrane manufacturing operation on its Greenville, Ill. campus. State-of-the-art manufacturing equipment will enable CCM to provide a variety of sizes and types of PVC roofing membranes.
John Altmeyer, president and CEO of CCM said, “CCM’s entry into the PVC market is a natural move for the business. PVC is a significant and growing segment of the commercial roofing market, both in the US and in many international markets. Our expertise and experience in EPDM and TPO single-ply membranes will assist us greatly in PVC. Furthermore, the addition of PVC to our existing line up of roofing systems allows us to leverage the company’s existing infrastructure including design and technical services, warranty coverage and field services. Finally, our range of brands and sales channels will facilitate exposure and movement of PVC roofing systems to roofing contractors, consultants and building owners.”
The process of specifying equipment and construction of the PVC facility is ongoing. CCM-produced PVC is expected to be available for shipment by the end of the first quarter of 2014.
