In operation since September 2004, the Reno plant primarily produces HardieBacker and G2 products, as well as many exterior products. Reno is currently the only plant that produces products such as Artisan®, V-Groove, and Reveal®. An ISO 14001 environmentally-certified plant, Reno pioneered the company’s Ion Exchange program, which recycles and reuses water from the process.
The Reno plant team participates in various charitable activities, including blood drives and food drives. Employees support organizations such as the Food Bank of Northern Nevada, which benefits emergency food pantries, seniors, low-income daycares, rehab centers, shelters and youth programs; Hosanna Home, a local shelter and transitional housing program for homeless women; and Toys for Tots, which gives gifts to underprivileged children during the holidays.
