Simonton Windows® Breaks Ground for Addition to Georgia Facility

Simonton Windows has broken ground on a 120,000-square-foot addition for its Lyons, Ga., manufacturing facility. The addition is expected to be completed by August 2006 and more than double the space Simonton currently has at the facility, which is dedicated to the production of coastal products.

"Our Lyons facility began window production in January of this year and we already see the need to add more production space," said Jody Garrett, vice president of manufacturing for Simonton Windows. "We've been constantly ramping up operations there with additional procedures going on-line every few weeks. At the same time, we recognize that the need for coastal windows and doors will only strengthen in the future. That's why we decided to move ahead quickly with the expansion of the facility by starting construction on an addition."

The ground breaking took place on February 27, 2006 on land next to the original site. The company expects to add 200 more jobs when the facility is completed.
