Community Impact says it all. The 10th Annual CiCi Community Impact category celebrates and highlights projects around the country that were announced in 2014 and are making a much-needed investment in their communities, bringing jobs and promises of revitalization with them. This category celebrates not only the companies that are making the investment, but the tireless work of the local and state development officials that have helped attract these companies.
Founded in 1886, GAF is the largest roofing manufacturer in North America. Now, it’s hanging its shingle in Missouri in the Moberly Area Industrial Park by building a new, 320,000 square- foot state-of-the-art manufacturing plant. GAF Roofing will invest more than $150 million to develop a 147-acre site for a new shingle laminator facility, an expansion that is expected to create 125 new jobs with a higher wage than the current county average. The plant will serve GAF’s Midwest markets and further enable the company to better serve all of its markets and customers.
