NIBLEY, UT - Weather Shield is selling its 217,000 square foot window and door manufacturing facility in Nibley, Utah. Priced at $4.7 million, the plant features 22 dock-high loading doors and rail access. It was built in 1978.
Last week Weather Shield planned to begin layoffs at its 500-employee Mosinee, Wisconsin plant, which produces vinyl doors and windows. The union operation is scheduled to close August 31. Production is being relocated to a non-union Ladysmith, Wisconsin plant, which will see 125 to 175 additional workers, according to local media reports.
Privately-held Weather Shield, based in Medford, WI, is also conducting an auction of equipment at its Utah plant. On sale among are Weinig and Mattison moulders, Supermax milling machine, Schiele vacuum coater, Sampson sash saw, Aro and Graco spray finishing systems, and a multitude of other equipment, motors and miscellany, including numerous Makita chop saws within the 1,699 lot at Industrial Recovery Services.
Founded by Edward Schield as an aluminum storm door manufacturer in central Wisconsin, Weather Shield's major product lines are windows and doors in solid wood, wood clad in aluminum, fiberglass, or vinyl, and doors and windows of solid vinyl and aluminum.
