GAF Energy, a Standard Industries company, announced plans to open a new sales and customer operations center in Kansas City, Mo., serving as a national sales and customer operations hub and employing dozens of people when fully staffed.
In a September 21 news release, the company said Kansas City would be its third significant hub, joining GAF Energy's headquarters in San Jose, Calif., and a manufacturing facility in Georgetown, Texas, that is still under construction.
GAF Energy's solar roof product –Timberline Solar – features “… the world's first nail-able solar shingle” and is “the only roof system to directly integrate solar technology into traditional roofing processes and materials.”
"We believe that the future of energy is solar roofs, produced in American manufacturing facilities,” said Martin DeBono, president of GAF Energy. “For solar roofs to reach that potential, we need to reach homeowners in every part of the country."
GAF Energy announced the construction of a new 450,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Georgetown, Texas, to meet the growing demand for the Timberline Solar roof in the summer of 2022.
The Georgetown manufacturing facility will increase the company's capacity by 500% and bring the total production of its solar shingle to 300 megawatts annually, making GAF Energy the world's largest producer of solar roofing, a company news release announcing the Kansas City center said.
"Our new Kansas City office enables us to streamline our customer and project support to help achieve our goal of generating energy from every roof," DeBono added.
