Saint-Gobain Breaks Ground On Glass Mat Facility

On the heels of multiple investments in North America in recent months, France-based Saint-Gobain held a groundbreaking ceremony for a new glass mat facility recently on its CertainTeed Roofing campus in Oxford, N.C. The investment of $167 million is the company’s largest ever investment in a U.S.-based roofing facility. The plant will produce polymer resin-bonded fiberglass filament mats that are a key component in roofing shingles. The investment was supported by more than $700,000 in incentives and grants from the State of North Carolina including the One North Carolina Fund and a Rural Division Building Reuse Grant.
