MIRAMAR, Fla. (March 19, 2008) — Firestone Metal Products Co L.L.C. has opened a factory and distribution center in Miramar.
The 65,000-sq.-ft. plant is five times larger than one in Pompano Beach, Fla., that it replaced, the company said. The entire staff at the smaller site transferred to the Miramar operation.
The facility will produce and distribute Firestone's complete line of painted steel and aluminum, anodized aluminum, mill finish aluminum, galvanized, galvalume, stainless steel and copper roofing panel, sheet and coil products.
The plant's increased capabilities will allow it to provide roll-formed products more quickly while offering freight savings to customers, Firestone said.
The business' sister company, Firestone Building Products, is one of the largest rubber roofing operations in the country.
