BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) - According to Gov. Greg Abbott, CertainTeed LLC will be building a new roofing manufacturing and distribution facility in Bryan.

CertainTeed is a manufacturing and distributing company that produces exterior and interior building projects and is a subsidiary of Saint-Gobain.

The new location will be located in Texas Triangle Park in Bryan and will be their first building in the United State since 2017.

The business is expected to create 130 new jobs and about $140 million in capital investment. CertainTeed has also been extended $546,000 from a Texas Enterprise Fund grant and was offered a $1,000 Veteran Created Job bonus.

Brazos County Judge Duane Peters says the impacts that CertainTeed will have on Brazos County will be phenomenal.

“It will help Brazos County, citizens of Brazos County and they bring a lot to the table. We’re happy to have them,” said Peters.

“Our new manufacturing facility and distribution center symbolizes our commitment to our customers in the southern United States, to the State of Texas, and to the City of Bryan and its citizens,” a statement from CertainTeed Vice President and General Manager Carmen Bodden said.

CertainTeed’s facility will be located at Texas Triangle Park on Highway 6 and FM 2818 in Bryan. Construction is scheduled to begin later in 2023.
