TAMKO’s Columbus plant played an integral part in the recent launch of the new Titan XT™ and StormFighter IR™  shingles, and the location has an important role in the small-scale Southeast Kansas community where it’s located.  

TAMKO’s Columbus plant General Manager, Greg Powell, recently accepted the 2020 Business Growth Award presented to TAMKO by the Cherokee County Economic Development Group. The award recognizes TAMKO for its growth in Southeast Kansas and the Columbus plant for diversifying and expanding its operations with the addition and increased production of a new polyester fabric developed for the TAMKO® Titan XT™ and StormFighter IR™ shingles. An important part of the new Heritage Proline™ series of premium architectural shingles, the new polyester fabric is known as the AnchorLock™ layer technology and represents one of the foundational technologies of the new series, reinforcing the expanded nailing zone, providing an anchor for nails to embed in and resulting in enhanced wind performance.

 “We love to see companies that have been here a long time continue to grow and expand,” said Janet Miller, Cherokee County Economic Development.  “That’s a sign of a healthy economy. We love to see that and TAMKO certainly fits the bill.”
