O-C Expansion To Suport G-P Business

July 29, 2005

Owens Corning will spend $25 million expanding its Aiken, S.C. manufacturing facility to support the recent launch of a composite solution that is transforming the building materials industry.  The expansion will add a third production line for coated glass fiber mat nonwovens and employ approximately 25 people.

Scheduled to start in the second quarter of 2006, the new line will produce a new Owens Corning glass mat facing for Georgia-Pacific Gypsum’s next generation of DensArmor as well as a paperless interior wallboard product introduced at the International Builder’s Show in January, that is already redefining wallboard.  DensArmor Plus panels feature a glass mat facing that finishes like paper-faced wallboard, resulting in the first completely paperless interior wallboard that offers moisture and mold resistance and finishes easily.

The Aiken facility expansion will include the new veil coating production line, modifications to the existing warehouse and two new buildings including an on-site coating “kitchen” and a new office complex.
