GAF, a North American roofing manufacturer, plans to relocate its corporate headquarters to Parsippany, N.J., once renovations are completed on a building at 1 Campus Drive. GAF’s approximately 600 employees and contractors working at the company’s current headquarters in Wayne are expected to transfer to the new location.
For more than 30 years, GAF has been based at a 99-acre campus in Wayne, sharing space with its affiliated companies. Ashland Inc., which acquired International Specialty Products in 2011, announced earlier this year that it would relocate its employees from the GAF campus to other locations in New Jersey.
“Our offices in Wayne, as well as this community, have been terrific for us for many years, and leaving here will be difficult,” said GAF President and CEO Bob Tafaro. “However, the building in Parsippany offers us a modern office with improved work efficiencies which will allow us to continue to improve our services to our customers while providing room for future growth.”
Terms related to GAF’s relocation will not be disclosed. No decision has been made regarding future plans for the Wayne campus.
