Roxul, a manufacturer of stone wool insulation products, officially began production in Marshall County, Mississippi, at its first manufacturing facility located in the United States.
The $160 million plant encompasses 600,000 square feet and is located on a 100 acre site in the Chickasaw Trail Industrial Park, approximately 30 miles south of Memphis. This location will help Roxul maintain its growth in key insulation markets such as residential, commercial building, flat roof, and industrial applications, in the mid and southern USA and Mexico.
Roxul will employ approximately 150 workers on-site once the plant is fully operational.
The factories’ location was announced at a September 2012 event. The company officially broke ground on May 8, 2013, on the state-of-the art facility.
Roxul currently operates two North American facilities in Canada, located in Milton, Ontario and Grand Forks, British Columbia.
