PGT Innovations Ranks No. 1 on Forbes’ Best-in-State List for Engineering, Manufacturing CategoryAugust 29th, 2022 by Editor
Being one of only 33 Florida-based companies to make Forbes’ America’s Best-in-State Employers list for 2022 is not PGT Innovation’s greatest accomplishment with respect to this year’s publication. The company also announced in a news release that it secured the top spot in the engineering and manufacturing category out of a complete list of 1,380 companies across 25 industry sectors.
PGT wrote that the list was compiled using a survey conducted among 70,000 U.S. employees across more than two dozen industry sectors. The survey considered every aspect of an employee’s experience, from working conditions and salary, to potential for growth and diversity in the workplace. The survey also asked for direct recommendations from employees as well as indirect recommendations from industry workers.
“This recognition is a true testament to the incredible teams across our organization who strive every day to make PGT Innovations a great place to work,” says Jeff Jackson, president and CEO of PGT Innovations. “Our company’s success is owed to our team members, and that success is how we are able to continue investing back into our organization – improving our facilities and processes and providing competitive wages, benefits, and growth opportunities. But beyond that, it’s our team members who create this outstanding environment, foster community across our national footprint, and make up our culture of togetherness by living our values every day.”
PGT has been named on several of Forbes’ lists. Those include, in part, America’s Best Midsize Employers in 2022, Best Small-Cap Company in 2022 and 2021, Best Small Companies in 2021, and the inaugural list of America’s Best-in-State Employers in 2019.
PGT Innovations has approximately 5,500 team members across the U.S. supporting 30 facilities including manufacturing plants, glass plants, brand retail stores, warehouses and install offices. The company also recently launched Workplace from Meta with the goal of “better facilitating employee engagement and connection, as well as supporting its culture of inclusion,” PGT wrote.
