Cascade Windows, a privately held vinyl window and patio door manufacturer, has announced that it has merged with Tualatin, Ore.-based Empire Pacific Windows.
“I feel Empire Pacific Windows is a strong fit for Cascade because both firms share a true dedication to their products and customers,” says Randy Emerson, president/CEO of Cascade Windows. “The impact of this merger for Cascade Windows customers, as well as the existing Empire Pacific Window Customers, will be an expanded product selection, quicker lead-time, better research and development, more immediate delivery dates and expansion into new markets.”
