Andersen Corporation Moves Forward on $35 Million Expansion in Cottage GroveJuly 25th, 2019 by Editor
Andersen Corp. broke ground this week on the expansion of its Renewal by Andersen manufacturing campus in Cottage Grove, Minn.
“We are excited to expand our Renewal by Andersen operations to support the rapid growth of this business and the signature service our customers know and expect,” said Andersen Corporation chairman and CEO Jay Lund. “We are proud to invest in our Minnesota-based operations and are grateful for the support of the City of Cottage Grove, the Minnesota Department of Economic Development led by Commissioner Grove, and Governor Walz and the State of Minnesota.”
Adjacent to the existing Renewal by Andersen facility on Jamaica Avenue in Cottage Grove, the expansion will include a 350,000-square-feet of manufacturing, warehouse and office space.
“With the support of the state, Andersen’s expansion will create new jobs for Minnesotans right here in Cottage Grove,” said Governor Tim Walz. “It’s this type of partnership and collaboration that make Minnesota a top state to live, work, and raise a family.”
Andersen plans to invest more than $35 million in the expansion and is expected to create at least 125 new jobs to support growing demand for products made by Renewal by Andersen. The new facility will alleviate current space constraints by providing warehouse, office, distribution and additional parking space. With the new Value Add Center, the existing manufacturing facility will be reorganized for future manufacturing expansions.
“This expansion is a strategic opportunity to increase our capacity to meet growing customer demand for our signature full-service window replacement services,” said Paul Delahunt, president of Renewal by Andersen. “Delighting our customers every day is our top priority and key to our success. This is an exciting time for Renewal as we celebrate the growth of our business.”
In recent years, Andersen’s growth has been driven in part by products made with its Fibrex® engineered composite, including its Renewal by Andersen® product lines. This expansion is part of the company’s strategy to meet current and future demand for its Fibrex material-based products.
