Eagle Roofing Products is significantly increasing production capacity at its concrete roof tile manufacturing plant in Phoenix, Az.

“The Phoenix market is clearly the hottest market in the United States,” stated Dave Skierkowski, regional director for Eagle. “Meeting with builders throughout the region over the last several weeks, we have been subjected to a high level of enthusiasm about the Southwest real estate market that has led us to the conclusion that our market will need additional concrete roof tile capacity to satisfy home buyer demand for the next several years.”

Immediate plans call for training existing and new team members in preparation for expanding the Phoenix plant’s capacity by over 15,000 squares per month, bringing total capacity to approximately 100,000 squares per month.

John Campbell, VP of sales and marketing, said, “Eagle has additional production lines available at our Phoenix manufacturing plant that could be re-commissioned if the market continues to vault towards the levels last seen in 2004 and 2005. We have no limitations should the market continue to grow.”
