Earthwise Group Expands Alliance
The Earthwise Group, an alliance of regional window manufacturers from around the country, has added three new members. With the addition of Showcase Windows in Houston, Texas; Sprouse Windows in New Martinsville, W. Va.; and Winstrom Windows in Toluca, Ill., the group now has 14 fabricators in 13 states.
The vinyl window manufacturers in the Earthwise Group meet three times per year and hold monthly conference calls to discuss the group's concentrated efforts in the areas of testing, operations and marketing of the core products common to all members. Although the alliance's members enable the organization to cover the entire U.S., the companies remain independently owned and operated to maintain the flexibility to better serve local and regional market needs, it is noted.
