PayneCrest formed a firm relationship while working with CertainTeed Roofing at their new state-of-the-art asphalt roofing shingle plant and Midwestern distribution facility in Jonesburg. Our team was selected to finish out the remaining electrical process packages at the $100 million facility which includes design and installation for the manufacturing and packaging of shingles.
The process begins at the rail unloading dock, where rock material is brought in on conveyance systems and sorted between silos. Once a specific style has been chosen for production the material is brought in to be formed with asphalt and then placed upon a roll of felt paper through a laminator. The sheets are sent through cutters where they are stacked and then palletized for distribution.
CertainTeed, which is a leading brand of sustainable building materials, was founded in nearby East St. Louis as the General Roofing Manufacturing Company, and today, offers a wide array of residential, commercial and solar roofing products. The Jonesburg facility has created approximately 100 jobs for the area.
