The new year is here and 2020 is already off to an exciting start for Eagle Roofing Products and its customers with some recent company news.
In December, a press release was published discussing the expansion of Eagle’s Sumterville, FL manufacturing facility. The project was set in motion last year when 40,000 new flat tile molds were added to the manufacturing plant in effort to keep up with the increasing demand for flat tile along the East Coast. The company is now in the second phase of the project, adding a fourth high-speed production line to the location that will increase production of concrete roof tile by nearly 30 percent. A 90,000 square foot addition to the plant is also underway, which will provide added storage for raw materials and for Eagle’s expanding component offering. The entire project is set to be completed in spring.
As an added effort to better assist customers, Eagle has restructured the California and Southwest sales departments into segment-driven teams. This includes a Builders and Architects team and a Conversion, Custom and Reroof team. Those dedicated to builders and architects will work closely with volume roofing contractors, while the Conversion, Custom and Reroof teams will oversee the company’s distributor relationships. A full list of these personnel changes can be found here.
Lastly, it was just announced that the Eagle Secure Tile Roof Components line has expanded with the nationwide launch of Eagle Armor by APOC. Eagle Armor by APOC is a premium, all-purpose fleece top underlayment and leak barrier that pairs beautifully with concrete roof tile applications. It is suitable for metal roof systems, as well, and can be used with either foam or mechanical fasteners. Eagle Armor by APOC is specially formulated to handle the most extreme weather conditions, protecting homes and commercial buildings from high temperatures, humid conditions, rain and wind. For more information or for a free sample, customers can contact their local Eagle Account Representative.
