Menck USA has finalized details to begin production of advanced, energy-efficient windows in 75,000 square feet of leased space at 77 Champion Drive in Chicopee, Mass. The company says the new manufacturing facility will make high-end windows to meet the increasing demand by architects and developers for energy-efficient building projects.

“We recognized that the need for competitively priced and highly engineered windows will continue to grow,” says Todd Bachelder, president and CEO for Menck USA.

Developed in partnership with Menck-Fenster of Hamburg, Germany, the new plant will use state-of-the-art CNC equipment and the exacting specifications used at Menck-Fenster’s production facility in Scherwin, Germany. “Europeans have been on the forefront of high-efficiency windows for well over a decade,” Bachelder says.

Constructed of all wood or wood and metal cladding, tilt-and-turn windows will represent a key part of the Menck Windows product range. In addition to Bachelder, Menck USA will be managed by an executive and production team with decades of high-end window experience in the U.S.

The new plant is scheduled to be in operation in the fall of 2014. Until full production, the company will produce windows, doors and window walls for builders and architects with its German partner, Menck-Fenster.
