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.

The Jefferson County facility is scheduled to open in early 2021 and will be home to 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.

The new factory in Ranson (Jefferson County) will serve customers on the eastern seaboard and represents an investment of $150 million dollars, creating 150 new jobs. 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 positions at our facility, a similar number of indirect jobs will be created as we build supplier relationships and locally source services and products. When combined with taxes paid and payroll for our staff members, we project that $218 million will be injected into the local economy over the first 10 years of operation.

The facility will be constructed on a 130-acre site and many community members have told us that the plant will be a benefit to the people of Jefferson County, 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.

We are investing in the future of Jefferson County. Learn about our commitment to community investment and sustainable production by downloading our ROCKWOOL Community Brochure.

We're very happy that ROCKWOOL is in our community. They’ve been a great corporate citizen. The leadership from the corporate level to the local plant manager and team have been exceptional to work with. They have strived to make a mark in Marshall County and in the region. They’ve done a very good job of hiring local employees.
