California — GAF Energy has completed critical improvements and begun moving into their new 112,000-square-foot facility in San Jose, California.
The new facility will serve as the company’s center for research and development and manufacturing.
The company is continuing to hire for positions at the facility in clean energy manufacturing and associated jobs. As part of Standard Industries and a sister company to GAF, the largest roofing manufacturer in North America, GAF Energy brings extensive roofing manufacturing and R&D expertise to the solar industry.
“We’re pleased to have completed the build-out of our facility ahead of schedule. This is the next step in delivering a reliable, durable, attractive and easy to install solar roof to market,” said Martin DeBono, president of GAF Energy.
“I’m happy to welcome GAF Energy to our South San Jose community,” said Assemblymember Ash Kalra. “Creating green jobs and expanding access to renewable energy is instrumental to a sustainable and equitable future.”
“With construction complete on GAF Energy’s new Edenvale facility, our city is looking at the on-shoring of hundreds of clean energy employment opportunities in development, manufacturing, and administrative support at a critical juncture for our local economy,” said San José Mayor Sam Liccardo.
