Quaker Windows and Doors has opened a new manufacturing facility to produce windows and wood doors for the commercial and residential markets. The 185,000-square-foot facility in Vienna, Mo., which became operational at the end of January, allows for greater production capacity and features new automation equipment, conveyor systems and an expanded area for paint and specialty products.
“This new facility not only creates additional production capacity for Quaker to stay out ahead of growing demand for our current family of wood products, but also allows us the space to roll-out some very exciting new technology and a suite of innovative product solutions to meet the market’s ever-evolving needs and expectations later this year,” says Quaker CEO Kevin Blansett.
This plant is designed to add an additional 100,000 square feet in the future. It offers additional shipping capabilities, expanded parts and service support, along with enhanced capacity and productivity.
Blansett says opening a new wood manufacturing facility is part of Quaker’s strategic growth plan.
“We opened a new architectural and residential vinyl facility in March of 2016, expanded our insulating glass plant in 2017 and are currently expanding our ModernVu/M600 architectural aluminum door line in the former wood facility,” he says. “We continue our commitment to bring innovative wood, aluminum and vinyl windows and doors solutions for the architectural, commercial and residential markets.”
Quaker Windows and Doors is a family-owned business founded in 1949. It manufactures aluminum, wood and vinyl doors and windows for the architectural, commercial and residential new construction, replacement, historic, blast- and impact-resistant markets. Quaker products are used in single-family, multifamily, education, hotel/motel, office, healthcare, government and assisted living buildings.
