Hurd Gets Aggressive with SuperSealJuly 13th, 2011 | Category: Industry News
Hurd Windows and Doors has announced that its subsidiary, Superseal Windows and Doors, will expand its market presence with a new facility in Merrill, Wis., alongside Hurd’s existing glass factory, which will remain operational.
Hurd purchased Superseal, which already had a manufacturing facility in South Plainfield, N.J., in January 2011. The addition of the new plant will allow the company to expand the Superseal brand into the Midwest, western United States and international markets, according to Hurd.
“Demand for the product is there,” says Dominic Truniger, president and chief executive officer of Hurd Windows and Doors. “This expansion will accomplish the dual purpose of building the Superseal brand, while improving distribution efficiency through consolidated shipping of Hurd and Superseal products.”
Hurd plans for the new Superseal vinyl window plant to become operational this fall. The company says it is investing in equipment and significant upgrades at the Merrill facility, and anticipates hiring up to 50 people within the next year.
