GAF Commercial Roofing, the largest roofing and waterproofing manufacturer in North America, has begun construction on its $80 million, 450,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Peru.
The plant is projected to employ more than 70 workers and will be located north of Interstate 80 and west of Plank Road on the OmniTRAX rail line. On-site production is expected to begin in 2024.
