Pella Corp. Expanding in OhioJuly 28th, 2020 by Editor
Troy, Ohio will soon be home to the newest Pella Corp., manufacturing facility. The door and window designer and manufacturer, will occupy an existing 324,000 square foot space where it will house the production of vinyl windows and doors.
The new manufacturing facility will serve customers in the Eastern region of the U.S. allowing the company to meet increasing demand for Pella vinyl products.
“We are excited about the growth opportunity that vinyl products represent. This new facility allows Pella to increase our production capacity and shorten lead times for our valued retail and trade customers in the region,” said Tim Yaggi, CEO of Pella Corporation.
Projections for the facility, which is expected to be fully up and running by 2025, are that it will create more than 400 new jobs once it’s fully operational. The project was made possible through partnerships with Jobs Ohio, Dayton Development Coalition, Troy Development Council and Ohio Development Services Agency.
Those groups understand what Pella was looking for in a community, and how beneficial a partnership between the company and community will be to both.
“During uncertain economic times, Pella is choosing Ohio as a partner to sustain its long-term success. Pella’s new operations in Troy will create 428 new jobs and become a manufacturing hub to supply customers throughout the Eastern United States,” said JobsOhio President and CIO J.P. Nauseef.
“Industrial recruitment is vital to the growth of any community, and I appreciate the hard work and dedication of everyone involved in this project at every level,” added Joseph A. Graves, Troy Development Council CEO. “Pella’s investment in our city and the employment opportunities that will be created provide a stimulus to the continued economic development of our area. I look forward to a long and successful partnership with our newest corporate citizen.”
It is a sentiment shared by mayor Robin Oda.
“The City of Troy is thrilled to be able to welcome Pella Corporation to our city. This has been a long process of effort and cooperation between the City of Troy, Pella, the Troy Development Council, the Dayton Development Coalition and Jobs Ohio, to make this happen. The creation of over 400 new jobs in Troy is an amazing thing for our community and our county. We look forward to Pella calling Troy home,” Oda said.
Officials from Pella are equally positive about the next step.
“Troy, Ohio is a great fit for Pella Corporation. It offers a rich heritage in manufacturing, as well as a skilled and available workforce. It’s clear that economic development is a top priority for the city, and we appreciate the partnership created between Pella, the City of Troy and the State of Ohio,” said Yaggi.
