As Atlas Roofing Corporation celebrates its 40th year in the roofing industry, the company announces it will invest $200 million to build a new asphalt shingle manufacturing facility in the Midwestern US. This investment represents the next phase of a vision to empower its people to create solutions and products with purpose, while creating additional shingle capacity in a geographic location that best serves its customers. Construction is expected to begin in early 2023, with product shipments expected in the fourth quarter of 2025.
“Today Atlas looks to new horizons for growth of our steep slope roofing category,” said Ken Farrish, president of Atlas Roofing Corporation. “We are thrilled to meet our customer demand with this investment in capacity in the Midwest, but we are equally excited to bring over 200 new full-time jobs to the region.”
Atlas plans to leverage a growing team of industry leaders to design and build a facility that focuses on safety, quality, and innovation. Safety and quality are the core of the company’s mission, as it ensures that the needs of both its employees and its customers are central to its planning and decision-making process.
“Atlas is committed to bolstering our capacity to support our customer base across the country and an investment in the Midwest meets that commitment head on,” said Stanley Bastek, vice president of sales and marketing for the Atlas Shingles and Underlayment Division. “This new manufacturing facility will result in service level improvements that increase access to Atlas shingles and system components across the country.”
In addition to expanding its roofing capacity, Atlas will manufacture products including roofing underlayment products and the company’s proprietary roof system components.
