ORLANDO – Blackton Inc. a major provider of roofing and flooring materials to the homebuilding industry, recently had the grand opening of their roofing division that relocated to the former Hood Tractor building at 2200 N. Orange Blossom Trail.
Micky Blackton, chief executive officer at Blackton, said the firm’s growing roofing division moved from the Alden Road location near Loch Haven Park after 62 years, to the 40,000 square foot industrial building situated on a one-and-a-half-acre site.
“We relocated our roofing operations to this central location to better serve our customers in this building boom we’re experiencing, and to limit exposure to Interstate 4 construction planned over the next seven years,” Blackton said.
The main corporate offices and flooring supply division remains on Alden Rd. next to the train tracks where it has been since opening in 1954.
