Five short weeks after an EF3 tornado severely damaged its final assembly facility, Lincoln Windows reports that is one again shipping products to customers.

 
 After a tornado hit its Wisconsin plant in April, workers have returned and production has started once again at Lincoln Windows

Last week saw the return of all plant employees and the first truck to leave the Merrill, Wis., facility since the tornado hit on April 10, officials note.  While the plant and corporate offices will continue to be repaired over the next four to six weeks, all departments will be fully operational during this period.

"It’s been through the efforts of many individuals that we have been able to resume production so soon after the tornado hit our community," reports Steve Kahle, sales manager for the Wisconsin manufacturer. "Lincoln is extremely proud of its employees and we are very appreciative of our vendors and customers who have supported us while our production was down. We look forward to being able to continue Jane Bierman’s legacy of excellence for generations to come."

Bierman, a co-founder of the company, passed away at the end of April.
