Firestone Expanding Metal Manufacturing Capabilities in Western United States

Firestone Metal Products, a sister company of Firestone Building Products, has announced plans to expand manufacturing capabilities with a new metal roofing plant and distribution center in the western United States. Site selection for the new location is underway.

The new facility is expected to manufacture a range of UNA-CLAD® by Firestone products, including architectural metals in coils and flat sheets, in addition to factory-fabricated roofing systems. The company expects the new facility to include a light gauge cut-to-length line with corrective leveling, coil slitting and roll forming capabilities.

The plant will be Firestone Metal Products' first metal facility in the western United States; it currently operates five metal production sites, located in Anoka, Minn., Pompano Beach, Fla., Warren, Mich., Jackson, Miss., and Morrisville, Pa.

"Investing in a sixth manufacturing plant reflects our commitment to providing customers with one source for high-quality products engineered and manufactured from the deck up," said Mike Gorey, president of Firestone Building Products and chief executive officer of BFS Diversified Products LLC.
