CertainTeed Roofing, a subsidiary of Saint-Gobain, has begun construction on its roofing manufacturing and distribution center in Bryan, Texas. The project is expected to be completed within the next several years and generate 130 new jobs for the surrounding area. The company claims that co-locating the distribution center and manufacturing plant will help lower the company’s carbon footprint, aiding in Saint-Gobain’s goal of carbon neutrality by 2050.

To help support the project, CertainTeed will receive 211 acres of land and a zero-cost rail easement. In addition, the company will receive locally supported industrial infrastructure, $546,000 in direct payments from the Texas Enterprise Fund, and ten years of property tax savings.

In a recent quote, Carmen Bodden, Vice President and General Manager of CertainTeed Roofing, said, “Our new manufacturing facility and distribution center symbolizes our commitment to our customers in the southern United States, to the State of Texas and to the City of Bryan and its citizens.
