More than 400 businesses and organizations belong to the Chamber to receive benefits and support efforts to strengthen their businesses and our region. Increased membership allows us to offer additional programs and benefits, have a stronger voice in advocacy and be involved in more activities and initiatives in our communities. The Chamber welcomes its newest member, GAF, to help us fulfill our mission.
GAF, as it is commonly referred to, is an acronym for General Aniline & Film, was founded in 1886, and is North America’s largest roofing materials manufacturer. Currently headquartered in Parsippany, N.J., GAF recently opened a new manufacturing facility in New Columbia, Pa., just off Interstate 80 at 2093 Old Route 15, which already has or will create more than 40 new jobs in the area. It currently has open positions at its new facility. GAF produces materials for both commercial and residential roofing systems, and the New Columbia plant is the latest of a more than $2 billion investment that GAF has contributed in the roofing industry over the last 10 years. GAF has been the recipient of numerous awards in recent years as it has grown to nearly $3 billion in annual sales. For more information, visit its website.
