January 12, 2021
Cardinal Glass is celebrating an $8 million expansion at its Vinton plant. The company held a ribbon cutting Jan. 7 to mark the completion of a project nearly two years in the making, according to local news outlet WDBJ7.
The upgrades to the facility include an expanded cutting floor, new break room and new training room.
The glass manufacturer has been in its Vinton location since 2004, according to WDBJ7, and plant manager Todd Matthias says this project was necessary to help keep up with an increased demand for their products.
“We’ve seen, throughout our company, growth in the residential window business, so we supply that industry and we have a need on the east coast to increase our capacity,” Matthias says.
The Vinton plant has 200 employees and plans to add another 50 jobs in the near future, according to the report.
