VT Industries to Relocate Stile & Rail Door Division
July 20, 2009

VT Industries of Holstein, Iowa, is relocating its stile and rail door production to the company's IDEAL Door Division in New Albany, Ind.

"This move is a great opportunity to not only increase production of flush wood doors produced in Holstein but to increase production of our stile and rail doors and our high-end custom doors manufactured at the IDEAL facility," says Jason Farver, vice president of VT Architectural Wood Doors. Currently, both stile and rail and flush doors are manufactured at the Holstein, Iowa, facility.

According to the announcement, in conjunction with the relocation of the stile and rail division VT Industries will be utilizing the previously allocated production space to increase the production capacity of flush doors over the next two years and no jobs will be lost due to the move. Stile and rail staff members will help prepare for the move, set-up, and training at the new facility and once the move is complete, those employees will be integrated into the flush door staff.
