Quebec manufacturer announces major expansion
JELD-WEN of Canada has announced a multi-million-dollar investment in its Quebec-based manufacturing facilities, which includes the purchase of new automated manufacturing equipment as well as a footprint expansion in Saint-Henri to substantially increase production capacity.
“We are committed to supporting our customers and their growth,” said Robert Conway, JELD-WEN of Canada’s vice president and general manager. “We have seen increased demand for our products nation wide and we are grateful for the overwhelming support of the JELD-WEN brand in Canada.”
The Saint-Henri Quebec facility currently manufactures JELD-WEN’s line of moulded interior doors as well as insulated steel doors. JELD-WEN’s second facility in St. Apollinaire Que., is the flagship manufacturing location for the company’s line of Vinyl and Hybrid Windows.
JELD-WEN’s Saint-Henri facility sits on 12-acres of land and the current facility spans one hundred and fifty thousand square feet. The facility has served as the Canadian manufacturing and distribution hub for Interior and Exterior Door products. The expansion project will add fifty thousand square feet to the facility and will be completed toward the end of 2021.
The Saint-Apollinaire facility will receive a new state-of-the-art automated window manufacturing and packaging line which will also expand current capabilities to address growing demand.
Combined, the company employs more than three hundred associates in the province of Quebec. Other operations in Canada include Window and Door manufacturing and distribution facilities in Toronto, Winnipeg, and Moncton.
