VIDEO Channell Commercial Corp. to create 250 new jobs in Rockwall

ROCKWALL – A new $20 million manufacturing facility currently being built in Rockwall’s Technology Park will soon create as many as 250 new jobs for Rockwall area residents.

Ground was broken late last year for the Channell Commercial Corporation’s corporate headquarters at the northwest corner of John King Blvd and Justin Rd. Extended.

The company expects to be fully operational and begin hiring by January, 2016.

Rockwall Economic Development Corporation CEO and President and CEO Sherri Franza comments about this new development.

  1. Why doesn’t the company have an operational website?

    As of 9/26/15, when you go to their website,, you see the following cryptic message:
    Not Yet! World-wide access available September 1st, 2015.”

    A few months ago their site stated that World-wide access would be available July 1st, 2015.

    And even more surprising, earlier in 2015, the website showed a “2011 Trade Show Schedule” under the caption “Upcoming Events.”

    It appears the website hasn’t been updated for more than four years.

  2. Thanks for the update! We plan to shoot another video report when the building is completed and hiring begins.

  3. The presentation is smartly done by Shari, CEO REDC; However in several places it reflected old information since the interview is a year old. The plant will actually be much larger than that depicted in the presentation. Our customer base spans the globe. We plan to open in February 2016 rather than October. There will be a process in place whereby we hire personnel which will be announced.
