Johns Manville to build polyiso products plant in Texas

January 27/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) --Johns Manville plans to build a polyisocyanurate (polyiso) products facility in Hillsboro, south of Dallas, Texas, as per Financialpost.

We take great pride in creating and delivering the best products for our customers, said Mary Rhinehart, President and CEO of Johns Manville. This expansion south of Dallas/Fort Worth, in an area where construction is surging, will increase availability of our premium products to customers throughout the region."

JM will begin construction on the new production facility later this year, pending various government approvals, and anticipates the completion in mid-2021. When complete, JM will employ more than 50 people at the new facility.

"There are tremendous growth opportunities in the Southwest for polyiso products, said Joe Smith, President of JMs Roofing Systems business. Three of the 10 largest cities in the country are a short drive from Hillsboro, and some of our largest roofing contractors are located within the service area."

The Hillsboro plant will manufacture polyiso products including ENRGY 3 roof insulation, ProtectoR HD high density cover board, AP Foil Faced Foam sheathing and GoBoard tile backer. These polyiso products are preferred in the market due to their high R-value per inch and the lightweight strength and durability they offer for several building applications.

The Hillsboro facility will also include a JM roofing distribution center. The warehouse will stock many JM products, including TPO and TPO accessories, to help JM meet local demand.

"We are excited to build in an area close to our customers and where we can hire good people into the JM family to help our customers be successful, said Matt Sayer, Polyiso and Boards Product Manager for JM. Johns Manville will be well-positioned with this expansion to increase product supply to meet the growing demand from our customers."

Local officials welcomed JMs decision to expand in Hillsboro.

As MRC informed earlier, Russia's output of chemical products dropped by 3.2% in November 2019 month on month.
However, production of basic chemicals increased by 3.6% in the first eleven months of 2019, according to Rosstat's data. According to the Federal State Statistics Service of the Russian Federation, the largest increase in production volumes on an annualized basis accounted for mineral fertilizers and polymers in primary form. Last month, 255,000 tonnes of ethylene were produced versus 210,000 tonnes in October; by November, Russian producers had completed all their scheduled works. Thus, 2,721,000 tonnes of this olefin were produced in January-November 2019, up by 0.3% year on year.
