Atrium Companies Announces North Texas Facility Consolidation
Atrium Companies Inc., a Texas-based manufacturer of vinyl and aluminum windows and patio doors in North America, announced that it will close its Danvid Window facility in Carrollton, Texas, and consolidate it with the existing Atrium Windows and Doors and HR Windows' facilities in Dallas.
"This plant consolidation allows us to enhance a number of business operations and will result in significant cost savings. Additionally, it allows us to upgrade the vinyl window production at our Dallas facilities," said Bob Burns, Atrium's chief operating officer. "The move is part of our strategic initiative to maximize our operating efficiencies while still delivering the same high quality products and service to our customers."
According to Burns, the closing of the Carrollton facility will affect approximately 230 employees.
"We hope a significant number of people will decide to take positions offered to them at the other locations.
egrettably, not all positions will transition and we recognize that not all employees receiving offers will be willing to make the move to another location," he said.
Atrium has made the announcement to its Carrollton employees, as well to those Danvid customers affected by the realignment. In many cases, orders previously placed by Danvid customers have already been transitioned. "We expect this process to be seamless for our customers," Burns said.
The company anticipates the transition will be complete by mid-February.
