FlashCo recently announced plans to expand operations in its Northeast U.S. market with a new manufacturing facility in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania. The new manufacturing and distribution facility will be the largest of FlashCo’s nine plants located throughout the U.S. The new plant will feature the latest state-of-the-art technology to produce FlashCo’s product lines of roof flashings, edge metal, accessories and coated metal.
“We’re extremely excited to be expanding in this region, especially since the acquisition of Metkote Laminated Products in Taylor, Pennsylvania,” says Greg Morrow, FlashCo President. “The new facility is more than twice the size and will better support FlashCo’s legacy business which is growing in the northeast. FlashCo has experienced tremendous growth since its founding in 2000 and I’m thrilled that we can invest in this region and facility to better serve our customers.”
FlashCo’s motto, since its inception, is Saving the Contractor Time. To fulfill this promise, FlashCo has strategically located its facilities and ships 90% of orders within three days, often on its own fleet of delivery trucks. FlashCo further saves the contractor time by prefabricating make-to-order accessories, utilizing digital tools to aid in the quote and order process.
“Each FlashCo location enables us to deliver on our commitments to our customers,” says Matt Froehlich, FlashCo V.P. of operations. “Our new facility in Wilkes Barre will be a great addition to our operations and represents our growing role in the roofing industry. We have a wide range of customers and partners throughout the industry and this facility will enable us to support and expand those relationships.”
FlashCo’s new facility in Wilkes Barre will produce its full product line that includes standard and make-to-order accessories for low slope and steep slope roofing systems. Improvements of the facility recently got underway, and it’s expected to open in the Spring of 2024. During this interim period, FlashCo will continue to support Northeast customers from its current location in Taylor, Pennsylvania.
