With construction set to be finished on its new site in June, GAF Energy will be manufacturing its solar roofing products in Georgetown by the end of the year, Ralph Robinett, senior vice president of manufacturing and supply chain, said in an email.

The new facility will increase GAF Energy’s production of its Timberline Solar, an innovative nailable solar shingle, by 500%, Robinett said. The Georgetown location will be GAF Energy’s second U.S. manufacturing center producing Timberline Solar.

This will make the company the largest producer of solar roofing in the world, he said.

The facility will be located on the southeast corner of I-35 and SE Inner Loop in Georgetown.

Once fully operational, 265 people will work at the GAF Georgetown facility. The company, which received incentives from the city for building in Georgetown, will invest more than $100 million in capital over the next 10 years.

Robinett said the company decided to build in Georgetown because the location allows it to tap into the region’s talent and situates it in the midst of a growing, vibrant residential solar market.
