PGT Innovations to Consolidate Florida Manufacturing Facilities
April 20, 2020
PGT Innovations Inc. plans to consolidate its Florida manufacturing facilities to optimize operations and reduce fixed costs, according to the company. The company expects to cease production at its Orlando facility in June 2020, where its WinDoor and Eze-Breeze products are assembled, and plans to relocate the manufacturing of those products to the Venice and Tampa, Florida, plants, respectively.
“Consolidation of our Florida facilities is an important step in our integration plans following the acquisition of NewSouth Window Solutions that we expect to improve our overall operations, strengthen our business and reduce costs,” says Jeff Jackson, president and CEO of PGT Innovations. “Once completed, we anticipate this consolidation will reduce our annualized operating expense by $3.5 to $3.8 million.
“We recognize this can be a difficult time for affected employees. This decision was made after careful consideration, and we are committed to assisting our employees through this transition,” says Jackson.
