Rockwool will host a series of community open houses to share information and address concerns of area residents about plans for its new manufacturing facility in Ranson, West Virginia.
Community Open Houses
The Community Open Houses will be on the following dates and times:
- Thursday, August 23 - 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
- Friday, August 24 - 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
- Saturday, August 25 - 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
All sessions will be at the Jefferson County Community Center located at 235 Sam Michael's Lane in Shenandoah Junction.
Internal and external industry experts will be available to answer questions and concerns of community members regarding the process to build and operate the stone wool insulation manufacturing facility in Jefferson County, including those about air quality and emissions, water and waste water, and community impact. Rockwool broke ground in June for the 460,000-square-foot manufacturing plant, which is being constructed on approximately 130 acres of the former Jefferson Orchards site in Ranson. When completed, about 150 people in positions ranging from management to the production line will be employed at the more than $150 million facility.
