A stone wool insulation producer has broken ground on a $150 million manufacturing facility in West Virginia.

Rockwool North America held a ceremony Tuesday in Ranson. The company says in a news release the 460,000-square-foot facility will employ about 150 people. Production is expected to start in early 2020.

Rockwool has production facilities in Byhalia, Mississippi; Milton, Ontario, and Grand Forks, British Columbia. Stone wool is a fiber-based insulation produced from natural stone and recycled content.
