HurdrenovationHurd Windows & Doors held a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, December 10, 2009, officially reopening its Medford, Wis., manufacturing facility. The celebration commemorated the completion of the company’s multi-million dollar facility renovation and consolidation, which began six months ago.

Dominic Truniger, president of Hurd said the event provided the opportunity to celebrate the newly renovated facilities and to share with the community and state leaders the company’s plans for future expansion in central Wisconsin.

“Our renovation and consolidation is an important catalyst for the advancement and profitability of Hurd,” says Truniger. “This new space is a tangible result of our new ownership’s vision and is just the start of more to come. We have a lot to be excited about at Hurd.”

Specific details of the renovation include the consolidation of two Merrill, Wis., facilities into its Medford facility, saving operating expenditures for nearly 400,000 square feet and reducing the company’s environmental footprint. The interior of its Medford facility was given a dramatic facelift throughout both levels including all new bright white painted walls and ceilings, new flooring, and new highly energy efficient lighting. A new roof, dust collection system, and new manufacturing equipment were also part of the investment.

To greater improve the company’s efficiencies and reduce operating costs, all manufacturing lines were reconfigured to reduce non-value added activity and simplify the manufacturing process. An update to the exterior is planned for the spring of 2010.

And the company shared with attendees that it has more plans for growth, including a new line of products geared toward the remodel and renovation segment and continued expansion of its H3™ line.
