  1. Mr. Turner,

    I live in Klamath Falls. I’m very concerned for the future of our great community. Times are economically tough for your company and for all of us in Klamath county. I vision the company of Jeld-Wen as our savior. Without Jeld-Wen this town would surely collapse.

    I would hope for both of us, that Jeld-Wen with its resources, would develop a new product that would require the construction of new production lines and the hiring of locals to produce that product. We have the vacant buildings that could be utilized, and with the many companies that have gone bankrupt, there should an inventory of equipment that could be utilized.

    You have the engineers. If you could just get them to design something useful for today’s market, we could all be back on top again.

    Thank you for this time.
