MUNCIE, INDIANA (NEWS) - A one horse roofing company than began a century ago, Sheriff-Goslin, opened a new operating facility in the Airpark Industrial Center.

Pete Dall, local manager, welcomed dozens of people from the construction industry besides members of the Muncie-Delaware County Chamber of Commerce during an open house and ribbon cutting this week.

The Midwest distributor of patented Art-Loc shingles began in 1906 with wood and slate roof coverings before asphalt became the standard in shingle products. The founders, Fred Sheriff, and B.G. Goslin, expanded the operation from Muncie and Marion to Ohio and Michigan now being one of the Midwest's largest shingle suppliers.

The new office and distribution center at 205 Ontario Drive in the Airpark was built by neighbor Scot Boyce of Boyce Construction that specializes in historic restoration. It replaces an older facility on South Walnut Street,

 Dall said logistics would be much better at the Airpark with crews and material. Actually, Sheriff-Goslin was putting on a roof Friday as temperatures in central Indiana spiked to 50 degrees.

 Sheriff Goslin offers a shingle that meets or exceeds fire and weather resistant standards and the company offers a 10 year guarantee on labor and material, unlike other contractors.

The shingle's unique design and colors are popular with new home buyers besides commercial businesses.

Local business leaders lauded the tenure and growth of the company that began locally and does a $1 million worth of sales locally a year.
