Rhode Island Leading the Way In Manufacturing

Chaffee Roofing has repaired and installed commercial flat roofing for factories and warehouses for years. One thing we’ve learned? There’s no time for shut-down when your business is growing. We understand that you need to do your best to avoid losing a day for any construction needs.

We Get It

Not only do you not want to shut down, but you need to keep your machinery intact. Companies invest in machinery that must be kept absolutely dust free. We get it: We’ve developed a streamlined pre-job system that manages risk by covering sensitive machinery with tarps to protect them from dust, for example, and scheduling roofing work over special areas during down times. Or, we can work with outside company’s, like Tuffwrap, to completely cover the underside of the structural decking.

How does this apply to Rhode Island’s booming industry?

Rhode Island is Happening

Rhode Island is beginning to stroll around with a new spring in its step as it sees Amgen, a biotechnology company with a presence in more than 100 countries, has announced that it will build a “$160 million ‘next generation’” plant in West Greenwich, a charming town that just over 6,000 Rhode Islanders call home.

And about 20 miles away, in Warwick, an innovative company named Aquamotion has just on the AHR Expo 2018 Innovation Award for the most innovative plumbing award of the year, internationally.

(If you have 4 water taps in your home, Aquamotion sells a plumbing product that could result in you using less water – 12,000 and 15,000 gallons a year, less. Interesting stuff on the rise.)

Gina Raimondo, the 75th governor of Rhode Island, is very enthusiastic about Aquamotion’s prospects, calling it: “the independent spirit of innovation that has fueled Rhode Island for centuries.”

Emerging companies like this interest us because we install the roofs over the heads of these industries. If a new company is moving into town or an established one is expanding, we want to make sure their business is covered – literally.

Rhode Island is Creating New Manufacturing Jobs

Manufacturing companies employ 8.69 % of the workers in Rhode Island, and, in 2013, generated 4.11 billion dollars.

But there is room for growth.

Governor Raimondo, on May 20, 2018, announced three companies who will be part of the rebirth of manufacturing in the state: Infinity Meat Solutions LLC; Electric Boat’s facilities, and iXblue will collectively add more than 2000 jobs to the local economy.

Not only do the buildings matter, but the people inside. We’re happy to be a part of a growing Northeast, looking to new establishments and their employment opportunities.

As a family-owned business that has been around since 1908, Chaffee roofing sees the bold steps that Rhode Island is taking toward greater economic growth, particularly in the manufacturing sector.

Chaffee Roofing knows Rhode Island.

As companies like iXblue move to Rhode Island or companies like Electric Boat expands, we stand ready to repair roofs and to efficiently install new commercial flat roofs for factories and warehouses across the state.
