YKK AP America has opened a new sales and manufacturing center in Rancho Cucamonga, California. Company officials say the facility will focus on sales, production, distribution and logistics.

The sales and manufacturing center offers more than 80,000 square feet of space designed to establish local production capabilities and allow for finished goods inventory. Officials say it will serve as a key U.S. sales and distribution center for customers in California, Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico.

The facility is managed by Robert Colon, who leads a sales and operations team focused on customer service, estimating, production and other support services. Colon has more than 20 years of experience in the glass industry. He most recently served as a production manager for Elite Glazing Group.

“By expanding our sales, manufacturing and distribution capabilities, we hope to extend this commitment and best service customers with personal support for the local market,” says Mike Turner, president of the commercial products division. “The opening of a sales and manufacturing center in the heart of the west will enable us to serve better and respond to customers in the region. It will create enhanced access to support services that glazing contractors value, including project estimating support, application engineering, locally produced custom doors, customer pick-up services for storefront and curtainwall stock lengths and parts and access to our deep portfolio of high-quality fenestration systems.”
