INDIANAPOLIS (May 19)—Firestone Building Products Co. is increasing thermoplastic olefin roofing membrane production with the addition 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, Firestone said.
The 80,000-sq.-ft. Wellford factory produces Firestone UltraPly-brand TPO roofing membranes and accessories. The expansion marks Firestone's second investment in the facility. In 2003, it added about 60,000 square feet to the site to better accommodate demand for the company's UltraPly TPO products.
