YKK AP to invest $125 Million in New Residential Products Manufacturing Facility

YKK AP America Inc. will invest up to $125 million in an expansion that will include a new residential window and door manufacturing facility and additional machinery and equipment in Macon, Georgia. The facility will serve as a model plant for the company’s future North American manufacturing plants, featuring advanced sustainable manufacturing and enhanced work environments for employees.

YKK AP’s residential products business has been headquartered in Macon since it was established in 2007. The company currently employs more than 250 employees in Macon who will relocate to the new facility once complete. With this expansion, the company will also add over 100 new jobs over the next few years.

JE Dunn Construction will serve as the construction manager for the facility and SSOE Group will serve as architects and engineers. YKK AP plans to break ground on the new facility in October of this year.

The facility is scheduled to be operational by the first quarter of 2024.

“We’re excited to build a new home for our residential services business in the heart of Macon. As we continue to see strong demand for single and multi-family residential window products, this investment will allow us to better serve our customers. We will expand our workforce, introduce further vertical integration of vinyl extrusion, glass and window production, and create enhanced efficiencies to manufacture the highest quality windows and doors for homebuilders and homeowners,” says Oliver Stepe, president of YKK AP America Inc.

“SSOE Group is delighted to design a world-class facility for YKK AP to support continued growth. This, along with the opportunity this creates to further develop the Macon-Bibb County economy, aligns perfectly with SSOE’s vision of designing and building the future for our clients, colleagues, and communities,” says Senior Project Manager at SSOE Group Mike Nelson.
