Building materials firm CertainTeed Corp. is negotiating to build a 244,000-square-foot extrusion facility in Buffalo, N.Y.
The new site would replace a smaller facility in nearby Cheektowaga, N.Y., where the company extrudes fence, deck and railing profiles, according to a news release from Buffalo Niagara Enterprise, that region's economic development group. Valley Forge-based CertainTeed would begin occupying the new facility in October 2004, as the first tenant in a 200-acre, waterfront revitalization project. Company officials could not be reached for comment.
CertainTeed had $700 million in estimated extrusion sales in Plastics News' 2003 ranking of pipe, profile and tubing extruders. The firm operates 13 extrusion facilities across the United States.
