In total, the company expects to hire an additional 20 full-time employees as part of the Expansion Project.

According to Tony Reis, President, “The Expansion Project is the result of continued company growth and the company’s commitment to meeting the needs of our customers today and in the future. With this investment, we hope to introduce new waterproofing projects to our portfolio of existing waterproofing membranes.
