Renewal by Andersen, the window-replacement division of Andersen Corp., was recently named a recipient of a 2017 Eureka! Innovation Award, honoring the most innovative companies, products and ideas in Minnesota.

Presented by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal, the goal of the Eureka! Innovation Awards is to highlight and recognize creative, progressive companies that are transforming their industries by the way they do business. Renewal by Andersen received the award in the “Architecture, Engineering, Real Estate” category during a recognition ceremony on June 21.

According to the Eureka! Awards, Renewal by Andersen’s corporate headquarters, factory and office expansion reflects Andersen’s commitment to the environment, its customers and its people. When the Cottage Grove, Minn., facility opened in 1999, Renewal by Andersen ran one eight-hour shift. The division quickly grew to meet demand, and today the factory runs 24 hours, five days a week. That growing demand prompted the expansion of its facility, which was completed in 2016. By adding 113,000 square feet to the manufacturing floor and 11,000 feet of office space, the expansion allowed Renewal by Andersen to add more production lines and create nearly 200 additional jobs in Minnesota.

The facility features high-efficiency LED lighting throughout, an enhanced building-automation system with seasonally adjusted cooling as well as around 160 new high-efficiency picture windows, manufacturedby Renewal by Andersen.

“We are honored to be recognized by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal with the Eureka! Innovation Award for our new facility,” said Paul Delahunt, president of Renewal by Andersen. “This isn’t just a place we come to work or conduct business, this is a community we’re invested in, where many of our employees call home.”
