TROY, Ohio - Pella Corp., one of the largest window and door manufacturers in North America, announced it will construct a 324,000-square-foot manufacturing plant in Troy, Ohio.
The plant will house the production of vinyl windows and doors. It will serve customers in the Eastern region of the United States and will enable the company to meet growing demand for its vinyl products.
"We are excited about the growth opportunity that vinyl products represent. This new facility allows Pella to increase our production capacity and shorten lead times for our valued retail and trade customers in the region," said Tim Yaggi, CEO, Pella Corporation.
The plant will employ 428 people when it's fully operational by 2025. Pella says the project was made possible through strong partnerships with Jobs Ohio, Dayton Development Coalition, Troy Development Council and Ohio Development Services Agency.
"The City of Troy is thrilled to be able to welcome Pella Corporation to our city," said Troy Mayor Robin Oda. "This has been a long process of effort and cooperation between the City of Troy, Pella, the Troy Development Council, the Dayton Development Coalition and Jobs Ohio, to make this happen. The creation of over 400 new jobs in Troy is an amazing thing for our community and our county."
Pella is the third-largest window and door manufacturer on the FDMC 300. Its divisions include Efco, Duratherm, Reilly Windows & Doors, and Grabill. In 2018, the Iowa-based company saw $1.25 billion in sales. Pella runs 16 manufacturing plants across the U.S. and employs more than 7,000 people.
In late 2019, the company was recognized as a Glassdoor Employees' Choice for Best Places to Work.
