Johns Manville To Boost Richmond Plant Capacity

Johns Manville (JM), Denver, will
increase its Formaldehyde-free™ fiberglass insulation capacity by almost 20 percent when it
constructs a new loose-fill line at its Richmond, Ind.-based manufacturing plant. The company
expects to complete the new line by mid-2006.

The expansion is the next phase of JM’s capacity-increase efforts, which will add up to 200
million pounds of insulation and will be complete by the end of 2006. Loose-fill production will be
boosted by almost 50 percent.
