ORLANDO, Fla. – Blackton Inc. a major provider of roofing and flooring materials to the homebuilding industry, is moving its roofing division to 2200 N. Orange Blossom Trail in October.
Michael “Micky” Blackton, chief executive officer at Blackton, said his firm recently leased a 40,000 square foot industrial building on a one-and-a-half-acre site at the
location to house the roofing operations including a staff of 25.
“We relocated our roofing operations to this location because of its central location and proximity to major arterial highways to better serve homebuilders in Central Florida,” Blackton said.
The main offices and flooring supply division will remain on Alden Rd. next to the train tracks where it has been since opening in 1954.
Blackton’s sales so far this year are up some 32 percent over last year, he added. (
