RIALTO, Calif. — Eagle Roofing Products announced the commencement of a significant expansion project to the company’s Sumterville, Fla. manufacturing plant.
Set to be completed spring 2020, the project includes a 90,000 square-foot addition to the plant that will provide added storage for raw materials and for Eagle Roofing Products’ expanding component offering, which includes the new self-adhered underlayment Eagle Armor by APOC.
A fourth high-speed production line will also be added to the location. This will allow the company to increase production of concrete roof tile, enhancing capacity by nearly 30 percent.
“Enhancing capacity is a two-step process,” said John Campbell, vice president of sales and marketing. “We began with adding 40,000 new flat tile molds to the manufacturing plant to add greater flexibility and meet the exceedingly popular architectural trends that support flat tile growth. The second phase is the construction of the fourth line. The equipment is built and we are currently preparing the raw material delivery systems to support the new line.”
In addition to the construction underway at the Sumterville plant, Eagle Roofing Products will begin construction of a new West Palm Beach stocking facility to better assist its southeast Florida customers.
In May 2019, Eagle Roofing announced a partnership with APOC, a manufacturer of construction products, to launch its Eagle Armor underlayment product for customers on the East Coast.
Founded in 1989 with five employees, Eagle Roofing Products has grown to four manufacturing plants, five design centers and a work force of 700 employees. To learn more about Eagle Roofing Products, visit www.eagleroofing.com.
