Sierra Pacific Windows announced today that the company has reached an agreement to acquire the assets of Merrill, Wis.-based Semco Windows and Doors, which closed abruptly on December 31, 2019.

Sierra Pacific, which already has operations in Merrill, acquired Semco’s 275,000 square foot, main manufacturing facility, along with all production equipment. The added space and equipment will allow Sierra Pacific to expand its production capacity to keep up with growing nationwide demand for its wood and vinyl products, the company reports.

“The purchase of these assets will pave the way for some much-needed additional production capacity in both our wood and vinyl product lines,” said president Tom Takach. “The newly acquired manufacturing space represents an additional 25 percent square footage, beyond our existing 1.1 million square feet. While the closure of Semco is very unfortunate, we are grateful for the opportunity to expand and stay ahead of the incredible growth of the Sierra Pacific Windows brand and all our product lines.”
While Semco was known for its wood and wood clad windows, Sierra Pacific won’t be manufacturing those products.

[DWM] inquired if Sierra Pacific will be hiring back any of the Semco workers and was told, “While we don’t have specific plans, as jobs become available, candidates with prior window manufacturing experience will certainly be given strong consideration.”
