CertainTeed Gypsum has announced plans to open a new manufacturing plant for joint compounds, tapes, powdered textures and other finishing products in north Las Vegas. Construction on the 100,000-squre-foot facility will begin this month, with production expected to begin late next year.
Based in Valley Forge, Pa., CertainTeed Gypsum already operates a wallboard plant in Las Vegas. The company, a subsidiary of Saint-Gobain, also has a joint compound plant in Kent, Wash.
When the second joint compound plant opens, CertainTeed Gypsum will be able to unite both of its product lines -- wallboard and finishing products -- in one shipment, the company said.
