CertainTeed Ceilings Plant Re-Opens in Meridian MS

CertainTeed Ceilings is reopening and expanding its ceilings manufacturing facility in Meridian, Miss., adding production capacity to increase its ceiling products. The announcement is the culmination of a re-invigoration of CertainTeed’s ceilings business and positions the company to meet growing demand for its innovative acoustical solutions.

CertainTeed is investing $24 million into the reopening of the plant, which had previously been idled in August 2009 due to uncertainty in the construction market. The company expects the plant to resume operations by mid-2014, bringing 110 jobs to the community by 2016.
