FlashCo to Open New Flashings Manufacturing Facility in Piedmont, S.C.

FlashCo Manufacturing Inc. is building its first location dedicated to serving the East Coast and Southeast. The new FlashCo plant opening in Piedmont, S.C., will produce standard and custom accessories for commercial and residential roofing projects. Accessories manufactured will be available in TPO, PVC, lead, copper, zinc and galvanized metal to meet the needs of roofing contractors.

FlashCo saves the contractor time by providing single-ply roof flashings and accessories that install up to five times faster than field-fabricated parts. On a typical job, roof flashings can represent about 5 percent of the project cost but can take up to 20 percent or more of the project time. Saving time and labor costs can make a big difference on the bottom line for contractors. “Saving the contractor time is our mission,” says Greg Morrow, FlashCo president and founder. “With our Piedmont facility, FlashCo will be ideally located to significantly reduce freight costs and transit times for our East Coast and Southeast customers, as well as our private-label partners.”

A key part within FlashCo’s growth has been its commitment to getting standard and custom-made parts to contractors in one to three days. According to Morrow, “It has always been my vision and dream to strategically locate FlashCo throughout the country, because in our business, it is all about getting product into the contractor’s hands when they want it. Roof flashings and accessories are sometimes overlooked on projects, so we get them the parts they need to finish the job on schedule and move their valuable labor resource to new projects.”

FlashCo’s Piedmont facility is scheduled to open June 1, 2014. It will be the seventh facility for FlashCo, joining Santa Rosa, Calif.; Chandler, Ariz.; Woodland, Wash.; Englewood, Colo.; Raytown, Mo.; and North Salt Lake City, Utah.
