Saint-Gobain Starts Operations at its New STONEfaçade Plant in Quakertown, Pennsylvania
MALVERN, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Saint-Gobain, through its construction products subsidiary CertainTeed LLC, has begun production at its newest North American manufacturing site, its first STONEfaçade plant, a state-of-the-art facility that will increase the company’s capacity for this product by tenfold, strategically located in Quakertown, Pennsylvania.
STONE facade is an innovative stone veneer system, made of concrete, that can be installed quickly and easily by any cladding contractor without special equipment or masonry skills.
“We are excited to bring our new STONEfaçade products to more customers across the country, and we are proud to add a new U.S. manufacturing facility to our manufacturing portfolio,” said Joe Bondi, Vice President and General Manager of CertainTeed Sidings Product Group. “Our STONEfaçade products enable cladding contractors to offer their customers more solutions, while ultimately saving installation time and costs without compromising on aesthetics. Our new factory in Quakertown will help our customers take advantage of this innovative product and fuel the wave of increasing demand for stone siding products.”
Compared to traditional stone, STONEfacade requires less time and less materials for wall preparation and installation. STONEfaçade uses screw-in panels, is completely mortar free and is equipped with an integrated rain screen to control moisture and create a better performing wall system. In addition, STONEfaçade has alternating one-piece corners for a realistic look.
STONEfaçade’s stone veneer system is available in a variety of color palettes, carefully hand-painted onto each individual panel, which can be coordinated with a variety of CertainTeed siding and roofing colours.
