Window and door manufacturer expects to add 125 jobs at new facility in Reidsville
PELLA, Iowa—Pella Corporation, a designer and manufacturer of windows and doors, recently selected Reidsville, North Carolina, as the location for its new manufacturing facility. Pella will occupy an existing 150,000-square-foot space, where it will produce and distribute vinyl windows and doors. The company expects to begin hiring in the fourth quarter of 2019 and estimates that 125 jobs will be created by the time the facility is fully staffed.
The new manufacturing facility will be a regional hub to serve vinyl customers in the strong and growing Southeastern region of the United States, Pella said in a press release. It will increase production capacity to support Pella’s four existing vinyl facilities in the United States.
“We continue to see incredible growth in our 250 series vinyl product line and recognized an opportunity to meet our customers’ needs in the Southeast by adding a dedicated manufacturing facility to service this market,” said Pella Corporation CEO Tim Yaggi, in a statement.
The new facility will be located at 310 Rockingham Dr. in Reidsville. The project was made possible through strong partnerships between the City of Reidsville and the State of North Carolina as well as the Rockingham County Center for Economic Development.
“Pella is a 93-year old, family owned company with a strong brand, a rich history of innovation, and a reputation for quality,” added Yaggi. “We are known for our core values, including total integrity in everything we do, teamwork and respect, and giving back to our communities. After an extensive site selection process, we are confident that the Reidsville community not only has a quality workforce but is also well aligned with these values and will help us continue to live up to our reputation as a great place to work.”
