The 57,000-square-foot facility, which went into operation in March, produces the company’s primary line of vinyl replacement windows. Vista Window is also moving its insulating glass line to the plant.

Founded in 2001, Vista Window Company is based in Lordstown, Ohio. It’s currently owned by JP Capital Management, a private-equity company with offices in Ohio and Florida.

“We are excited and appreciate Vista Window Company’s confidence in choosing Swainsboro for its new window and insulated glass manufacturing operations here in the Southeast,” said Ken Warnock, CEO of the Swainsboro-Emanuel County Chamber of Commerce and Joint Development Authority, in a statement. “Swainsboro’s geographic location to the Southeastern U.S. transportation infrastructure, local workforce and its low costs of doing business make it and Emanuel County one of the most attractive industrial and business climates for companies.”

“With sales continuing to grow, we needed to expand our manufacturing capacity,” said Vista Window CEO Justin Best in a statement. “Our previous experience with the workforce in southern Georgia, along with an ideal location for logistics and delivery, made Swainsboro the perfect fit. We’re happy to expand our business, to embrace the community, and to create jobs for great people.”
