Andersen Corp. recently announced plans to build a new manufacturing and distribution campus in Goodyear, Arizona. The window and door manufacturer will invest more than $105 million and create more than 415 jobs during the first phase of the expansion. The company anticipates a total investment of at least $200 million through additional future expansion.
The proposed campus initially will include approximately 500,000 square feet of manufacturing and distribution space for Andersen’s 100 Series product line. The first phase of construction is expected to begin in early 2019, with anticipated operation by the middle of 2020.
The products to be manufactured in the Goodyear plant will use a formulation of Fibrex material that contains a blend of wood fiber, mostly reclaimed from Andersen manufacturing processes, and thermoplastic polymer, some of which is also reclaimed.
"This new manufacturing campus is an exciting opportunity for us to increase manufacturing and distribution capacity for our fast-growing Fibrex products and expand our presence in the western United States where we are experiencing significant growth," said Jay Lund, Andersen chairman and CEO.
Headquartered in Bayport, Minnesota, Andersen Corp. and its subsidiaries manufacture and market window and door products under the Andersen, Renewal by Andersen, Silver Line, American Craftsman, EMCO, Weiland, MQ and Heritage brands. The privately held company was founded in 1903 and employs more than 12,000 people with manufacturing sites in North America and Europe.
