$145M CertainTeed roofing factory on way to Bryan

CertainTeed Parent Company to Build $145M Bryan Factory

Saint-Gobain is planning on building a new manufacturing and distribution facility in Bryan, Texas, through its subsidiary CertainTeed. Construction is scheduled to start this year.

The company expects to create some 130 full-time jobs. This is the company’s first CertainTeed roofing plant project in the U.S. since 2017. They will get a little help along the way. CertainTeed’s project benefits include 10 years of property tax savings, a gift of 211 acres, infrastructure improvements worth $3 million and a free easement for an adjacent rail line.

The project will be a 160,000-square-foot facility. The company will invest nearly $145 million in the new roofing plant and commercial operations are expected to start in 2028. Bryan is situated in the middle of the Texas Triangle, allowing CertainTeed’s future distribution center easy access to key industry hubs, such as Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin and Houston.
