Polyglass® U.S.A., Inc., a manufacturer of roofing and waterproofing systems, has opened a new 62,000 sq.ft. facility in Phoenix, Arizona, dedicated to manufacturing premium roof coatings and primers. The plant features 52,000 sq.ft. of manufacturing and warehousing space, doubling manufacturing capacity and adding automated equipment to improve efficiency and ergonomics. Expanded shipping and receiving facilities, a laboratory with sophisticated quality testing and color matching equipment, and a new customer service hub to serve regional and national customers have also been added.
The plant features automated computer-controlled ingredient delivery and recipe control equipment to increase accuracy, repeatability, and precision between batches. Polyglass sees this as a great beginning and just the start of what the company hopes to accomplish at the new facility, with even more modern automated equipment that can expand production.
Designed with an eye on future growth and expansion, the Phoenix plant can run multiple mixes at a time and can easily be expanded to accommodate additional automation equipment. Polyglass now has the capacity to increase production significantly as demand increases.
