Harvey Closing One Plant, Expanding Operations at Others

November 3, 2009

Harvey Building Products, the manufacturer and distributor of windows, doors and patio rooms serving the Northeast, plans to reposition its manufacturing facilities by closing its leased facility in Springfield, Mass., and transferring production to Harvey-owned plants in Dartmouth, Mass., and Londonderry, N.H.  Interested employees from the Springfield facility will be transferred to the Dartmouth and Londonderry plants, where approximately 90 jobs will be added, company officials report.

In recent years, Harvey Building Products has successfully expanded its product offering with a wider variety of energy-efficient products, executives state. Considerable production capability and capacity is available at Harvey's own state-of-the-art, ISO 9001 certified facilities in Dartmouth and Londonderry, the latter of which opened in 2007.

The Springfield plant will continue operating at close to current capacity through January 29, 2010.
Harvey's Springfield warehouse will remain in full operation to serve local area contractors and homeowners, allowing continued service to customers in the greater Springfield area, the company reports.

Based in Waltham, Mass., Harvey operates distributes a variety of building products in addition to its own windows and doors.  It operates 32 branch warehouses (including 11 product showrooms) in the six New England states as well as New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
