WEDOWEE, Alabama – Charlotte, North Carolina-based JELD-WEN Inc., one of the world’s largest door and window manufacturers, plans to expand production at its plant in Randolph County, creating up to 40 new jobs at the facility, officials announced today.
The expansion at the Alabama facility stems from JELD-WEN’s decision to move the assembly of patio doors from a number of Northern U.S. plants to Wedowee. The expansion will result in an estimated $25 million in sales revenue for the facility.
“This is exciting for our company. We are proud to have an opportunity to help the local economy grow and provide employment opportunity for a substantial number of local residents,” JELD-WEN Wedowee Plant Manager Terry Wiley said.
