Ohio Window Maker Closing Its Doors

August 2, 2010

Atria Building Products, a manufacturer of wood and vinyl windows based in Johnstown, Ohio, officially closed its doors last week. David Gerhardt, president, attributed the decision to close to continued weakness in market, combined with additional regulatory burdens.

"Atria would like to thank all of its customers, employees, and vendors for your loyalty during our 30-year run," stated Gerhardt in announcing the decision. The company plans to finish and ship all outstanding orders and pay all vendor invoices and then dispose of all equipment and inventory within the next 90 days, he noted.

Started in 1980, the company got its start building shop wood windows for builders in the central Ohio region. It eventually expanded into vinyl windows. In 2002, Atria was also the first to launch a vinyl window line with interior wood cladding, for which it won a Window  & Door Crystal Achievement Award.
