Firestone Expansion Celebration and Science Center Ribbon Cutting
Firestone Building Products Company recently celebrated the expansion of its Prescott manufacturing facility, which will result in 100 new jobs, along with the 418 jobs it will retain. In addition to the expansion celebration, which was held at Prescott Elementary School, officials of Firestone Building Products joined local and state leaders at the event to celebrate the opening of the Firestone Science Center at the school. Firestone donated $100,000 toward the development of the center. Federal recovery funds were also used for the project. This state-of-the-art facility will engage and educate elementary school students in the fields of biology, physics, chemistry and other areas of scientific research.
