Republic Windows and Doors Opens New Philadelphia Facility

In response to increasing demand for its integrated window manufacturing and installation services, Chicago-based Republic Windows and Doors has announced the opening of its new warehouse facility in Philadelphia. According to a company news release, the new facility was designed to serve the growing number of window dealers and remodelers in Southwestern Pennsylvania, Delaware, Western New Jersey and Northern Maryland who buy from distributors but are looking for added services and product options. The Philadelphia facility will offer a full line-up of Republic direct products, including the Classic II, Allure, Ramguard and Builder Series lines.

In addition to its extensive product and options offerings, Republic is also providing window installation services through its Installation Express division. In accordance with the American Architectural Manufacturing Association (AAMA) standards, all Installation Express installers are factory-trained through the AAMA InstallationMasters program. Installation will be available to customers within a 50-mile radius around Philadelphia.

"Distributors selling scores of different products can't provide the same level of expertise and total integration that we, as the direct manufacturer can," said Les Teichner, chief operating officer. "Republic carefully studied what was missing in the typical remodeler/distributor relationship. The new Republic distribution concept is what came out of our research."
