On March 22, IKO® Industries Ltd., Kankakee, Ill., celebrated the grand opening of its newest production facility in Hillsboro, Texas.

In 1981, IKO Industries opened its first U.S. asphalt shingle plant in Wilmington, Del. The newest 250,000-square-foot production and warehouse facility in Texas completes the company's manufacturing footprint in the U.S., allowing it to better serve and build upon its customer and homeowner base in the southwest region.

The new plant began production in late December 2017 and employs 65 people.
