MOBERLY - A large shingle manufacturer could open a new factory in Moberly.
GAF Materials Corporation is looking to build a 400,000 square foot factory that would employ up to 125 employees. The New Jersey company proposed setting up on a 147-acre tract of land south of the old Mamtek in north Moberly.
A decision is expected by the end of the year. If Moberly is selected then the factory would start production in 2015.
GAF has more than 3,000 employees and 23 plants across the country.
