Eagle Roofing Products Announces Plans for Building Texas Manufacturing Facility.

DALLAS -- Expanding its national presence in the tile roofing market, Eagle Roofing Products ("Eagle") today announced plans to build a new concrete roof tile manufacturing plant in Midlothian, Texas. Eagle Roofing Products, a division of Burlingame Industries, will begin breaking ground on the multi-line concrete tile manufacturing facility in late 2007 with the intent to deliver its first tile runs in 2008.

"Recent industry forecasts indicate that the housing market in Texas is significantly increasing and will continue to do so," said Bob Burlingame, chairman and CEO of Burlingame Industries. "The investment in a new manufacturing facility in Texas will enable Eagle to serve the growing demands for tile roofs in this emerging market."

Eagle Roofing Products will invest more than $35 million in the 225,000-square-foot plant. Eagle expects to employ 200 employees at the new facility during its first year in operation. The new plant will utilize today's most advanced multi-line, high-speed automated roof tile production equipment to manufacture four styles of tile specifically for customers in Texas and surrounding areas.

"For centuries, concrete roof tile has provided tremendous benefits in protecting homes from the harshest weather conditions while still maintaining its natural beauty," said Kevin Burlingame, President of Burlingame Industries. "With a comprehensive understanding of the market and the particular elements that builders in the South face, such as heat, hail, strong winds, and hurricanes, Eagle's sales team is fully prepared to support local building industry professionals."

The construction of Eagle's Texas plant follows the recent success the company experienced in completing production facilities in Phoenix, Ariz., and Stockton, Calif., on time and on budget. Its latest venture, a manufacturing plant in central Florida, is also nearing completion.

"Eagle Roofing Products has been tremendously successful in producing concrete roof tile to meet the unprecedented demand for this product in all areas of the country," said Seamus Burlingame, COO of Burlingame Industries. "Our continued investment in building new production facilities is evidence of our commitment both to Eagle's customers and to helping the industry promote concrete tile roofs throughout the U.S."
