#ThrowbackThursday: CertainTeed Roofing Invests in Jonesburg, Missouri

In the summer of 2016, CertainTeed Roofing, an advanced manufacturer of roofing materials, opened its new $100 million facility in Jonesburg, Missouri. The 60,000 square foot manufacturing plant, and adjacent 150,000 square foot warehouse, serve as the production and distribution center for the company’s ultra-popular roofing shingles.

“Today marks our official homecoming to this area, from CertainTeed’s humble start in nearby East St. Louis in 1904 to this highly advanced, state-of-the-art roofing facility here in Jonesburg,” said Tom Smith, President of CertainTeed Roofing, at the time. “This day wouldn’t have been possible without the unparalleled collaboration and support from the State of Missouri, the Missouri Department of Economic Development, Warren and Montgomery Counties and the City of Jonesburg. We are truly grateful for their support.”

CertainTeed choose the Missouri site for its strategic location, globally connected infrastructure, and access to highly skilled talent.
