New facility will create hundreds of jobs producing the world’s first nailable solar shingle
GEORGETOWN, TEXAS – July 19, 2022 – GAF Energy, a Standard Industries company and a leading provider of solar roofing in North America, has signed a lease and begun construction on a 450,000 square-foot facility in Georgetown, Texas. The manufacturing facility will be located on the southeast corner of I-35 and SE Inner Loop and construction is expected to be completed in June 2023.
“We are pleased GAF Energy selected Georgetown as their destination for their facility,” Georgetown Mayor Josh Schroeder said. “Their innovative product is one that will change the market as we know it, and we are excited that it will be developed here in our backyard.”
Once improvements are complete, the new facility will serve as the company’s second U.S. manufacturing center for its award-winning solar roof, Timberline SolarTM. Featuring the world’s first nailable solar shingle, Timberline SolarTM is the only roof system to directly integrate solar technology into traditional roofing processes and materials. The buildout of the property and its ongoing operations will result in hundreds of new, U.S.-based, clean energy manufacturing jobs and build on GAF Energy’s ongoing effort to deliver a solar roof product that is assembled in America. As a Standard Industries company and sister company to GAF, GAF Energy brings extensive roofing manufacturing and research and development expertise to the solar industry.
