Quality Lineals/North East Windows Add Capacity
To keep pace with sales growth, Quality Lineals USA Inc. and its sister company, NorthEast Windows USA Inc., have added 55,000 square feet to its Freeport, N.Y. facility. The expansion was was needed to accommodate five new extrusion lines, officials state.
Increased demand in Quality Lineals' extrusion business is coming from the addition of PVC fencing, new window fabricators, and the addition of product lines with existing customers, reports the companies' Phil Reid. The new extrusion lines are running in the company's original building, with the expansion now accommodating finished goods storage.
"We have experienced growth at both of our businesses," Reid states. "NorthEast Windows has been on a six-day work week for over a year now. Quality Lineals is also doing quite well, evidenced by the fact we're expanding the physical plant."
Quality Lineals and North East's primary focus has always been in the replacement market. The two operations are also seeing renewed activity in the new construction market, primarily in rental apartment projects, Reid reports.
