Pennsylvania Firms Honored for AchievementsMay 4th, 2016 by Editor
Three companies that are part of the door and window industry were honored this week by the Northeast Pennsylvania Manufacturers and Employers Association (MAEA).
MI Windows and Doors (MIWD) was recognized for community involvement, Solar Innovations Inc. was recognized for expansion, and Sapa Extrusions was honored for process improvement/product innovations, according to a report from the Pottsville (Pa.) Republican.
MIWD’s award honored its MIWD Charitable Foundation, which funds local and national organizations that help those in need.
“Any family or organization in need, we are always willing to help out,” Troy Etzweiler of MIWD told the Pottsville Republican.
Solar Innovations, which manufactures sliding door systems, added a 30,000-square-foot expansion in 2015. According to the newspaper, the company saw 40 percent growth in 2015.
“We just keep building a good team and doing it by having the great support of the community, the county and the people around you,” Greg Header, president of Solar Innovations, told the newspaper.
Sapa is an extruder of aluminum profiles used in residential and commercial buildings and many other applications. MAEA honored the company for its work on precision tubing for Ford’s new aluminum F-150 series truck.
Jean-Christophe Tygier of Sapa Extusions told the Pottsville Republican that Sapa supplied 8.7 million pounds of aluminum to Ford in 2014 and expects that to increase 50 percent this year.
