JM chair, president & CEO Todd Raba will deliver remarks to key customers and local officials. In July 2011, Johns Manville announced its plans to renovate a former rubber manufacturing facility, creating a state-of-the-art operation capable of producing about 100 million sf of EPDM roofing membranes. The facility will employ about 75 people when fully staffed.
