Tecton Products Breaks Ground for New Expansion Project
Tecton Products LLC of Roanoke, Va., broke ground this week for its new 75,000 square-foot facility in the Roanoke County Center for Research and Technology (CRT). The project, which was announced in April, will create 58 new jobs with a $9.5 million investment in the first phase of the project. The company says it will invest an additional $3.5 million and create 93 more jobs in Phase II by 2011. In total it plans to invest $13 million within the next five years. The company also considered a site in North Dakota for the project.
Roanoke County was selected primarily due to the presence of one of the company's largest customers, Integrity Windows. Roanoke's central location to its east coast customer base and proximity to Virginia Tech was also integral to its decision to locate within the region, due to the complex technology the company utilizes in the creation of its products.
"Today is significant in the growth and development of Tecton Products," said Robert Plagemann, general manager. "As we break ground for our second facility, the CRT will make an outstanding new home for the future success of our company." Tecton plans to open its facility and begin manufacturing by June of 2006.
