The Pennco Windows plant is being sold at auction. It features 200,000 square feet of production space and a large selection of robotic window manufacturing equipment. According to a release, the facility can crank out more than 1,000 vinyl insulated windows per day and can also produce patio doors.

Here’s the equipment that comes with the plant:

  • Glass cutter and roll former, both made by GED;
  • Fux Austria window assembly machine;
  • A heater tunnel;
  • Glass assembly lines;
  • Erdman glazing equipment;
  • A TFB aluminum bender;
  • Corner cleaner, frame welders and a frame line, all made by Urban;
  • Wegoma DMX-20 miter saw and autoloader;
  • Geller notch boxes;
  • Pertici end miller, and
  • Winpro Screen Express.

Chicago private-equity firm PPL Group and industrial auctioneers Myron Bowling Auctioneers of Hamilton, Ohio, are handling the sale.

“Pennco Windows was operating into the first quarter of 2015,” said PPL Group’s Alex Mazer of the company, which began as a lumber operation before switching to door and window manufacturing in 1961. “PPL Group is marketing the assets of the company to potential strategic going-concern operators or buyers. This facility represents a rare opportunity to buy a complete vinyl window manufacturing facility. The right buyer will be able to use this facility to augment other facilities or to immediately create a strong competitor in this industry.”

Bidders can register and find more information at sales@pplauction.com or by contacting Mazer at 224-927-5329.
