Elk plans new asphalt roofing plant.

In response to growing demand for its "Elk Prestique" premium laminated asphalt roofing shingles, Elk, Ennis, TX, will build a plant in California to serve Western states. While no specific site has been named, the company expects the facility to be in commercial production by the second half of 1994. Production at the plant will increase Elk Prestique capacity by 65%, freeing the Ennis facility to better serve the growing demand of Southern and Midwestern customers. The asphalt residential roofing shingle uses a nonwoven fiberglass substrate to support the layers of bitumen.
