A history of community partnership and responsible environmental practices
The City of Ranson Jefferson County, West Virginia was one of 50 areas in 10 states considered as a location to build our insulation manufacturing facility in the United States. Ranson’s proposal was ultimately selected as our home to build this facility.
Our Jefferson County facility began commercial production July 2, 2021 and is our second stone wool insulation manufacturing plant in the United States, following the facility in Marshall County, Mississippi which opened in 2014.
ROCKWOOL has operated in North America for more than 30 years and 80+ years globally, with a consistent track record of safeguarding the safety, health, and wellbeing of citizens in the communities living by the 46 facilities where we already operate. Beyond the location in Mississippi, we operate two other North American factories in Canada – located in Milton, Ontario and Grand Forks, British Columbia.
Our new factory in Ranson (Jefferson County) serves customers on the eastern seaboard and represents an investment of $203 million dollars. Working at ROCKWOOL, we provide meaningful career opportunities that contribute to improving the lives for people around the world. We also continue to drive growth by investing in our employees and have established a people-driven and inclusive culture that provides employees with a friendly and respectful atmosphere for growth and development.
In addition to 130 positions currently at our facility, a similar number of indirect jobs have been created as we build supplier relationships and locally source services and products.
Our 338,000 square-foot facility was constructed on a 136-acre site bringing well-paying jobs that are close to home, an increase in positive downstream economic activity, additional tax dollars to support municipal programs, and best-in-class environmental performance.
