Rockfon North America Facility

Located in Marshall County, Mississippi, this Rockfon state-of-the-art facility is the company’s fifth stone wool ceiling production site globally. Its complete ceiling product offering combines Rockfon® acoustic stone wool and specialty metal ceiling panels with Chicago Metallic™ suspension systems.

The ROCKWOOL Group, the world’s largest manufacturer of stone wool products, invested approximately $40 million in the new 130,000-square-foot (12,000-square-meter) Rockfon North America facility. With support from colleagues at ROCKWOOL and its worldwide network, the U.S. production line began as scheduled and is operating as anticipated.

“We are excited to have our first Rockfon North America facility open and operating as planned,” says Rockfon President – Americas John Medio. “We listened to the North American market and heard its growing demand for our stone wool acoustic ceiling products. Our new facility is a game-changer in the U.S. ceiling products industry. It extends our capacity across the globe and positions us well for future expansion.”
