(FONTANA, Calif.) – Sierra Building Products, an Oldcastle® Company and manufacturer of Belgard® products, unveiled its second Fontana plant facility on Nov. 10, which doubled local production capacity and introduced more than 20 new jobs to the Fontana community.
To celebrate this milestone, area contractors, dealers, design professionals, and city officials were invited to enjoy exclusive plant tours, giveaways, and demonstrations of new product introductions.
In the greater Fontana area, pavers have become the standard choice when considering outdoor landscape projects, both commercially and residentially. With the expansion of the production facility, the plant will be able to meet growing contractor and homeowner demands for both pavers and retaining wall products.
The new facility takes efficiency to the next level, thanks to the use of LED lighting, variable speed motors and design improvements to limit the use of energy. The grand opening event celebrated the new facility’s completion, just one year since its groundbreaking. Belgard expects additional job opportunities to arise as its growth continues in Fontana and the surrounding markets.
Local publicity garnered by the plant opening include coverage by the Fontana Daily News, as well as an upcoming interview between the mayor and Brian Austin, president of Sierra Building Products, to be conducted on a local television broadcast early in 2017.
