Window Maker Reopens Wisconsin Plant After Renovation

Jan. 5, 2010
Medford, Wis.-based Hurd Windows & Doors Inc. recently celebrated the reopening of its Medford wood-window manufacturing facility.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony in December marked the completion of the company's multimillion-dollar renovation and consolidation of the facility, which began in June. Hurd recently was acquired by Medford-based HWD Acquisition Inc.

"Our renovation and consolidation is an important catalyst for the advancement and profitability of Hurd," said Dominic Truniger, president of Hurd. "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."

Hurd consolidated two Merrill, Wis., facilities into its Medford plant, saving operating expenditures for nearly 400,000 square feet and reducing its environmental footprint, according to the company.

As part of the renovation, the company repainted the walls and ceilings and installed new flooring and energy-efficient lighting. A new roof, a dust-collection system and new manufacturing equipment also were part of the renovation, according to Hurd.

"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," the company added.
