General Information: Continuing to streamline its branding, Andersen introduced the Architectural Collection in 2012, bringing together its A-Series product line with the new E-Series line, formerly sold under the Eagle Window & Door name. Based in Bayport, Minn., where it operates a 2.8 million-square-foot facility covering 65 acres, Andersen has 15 manufacturing locations in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Texas, Ohio, Georgia, New Jersey, and Ontario, Canada.
Dating back more than 100 years, Andersen now encompasses not only its wood window and door operations, but Silver Line Windows & Doors, a producer of vinyl windows and doors with an 880,000-square-foot headquarters plant in North Brunswick, N.J. and facilities in Georgia, Illinois, Ohio and Texas. It also produces American Craftsman brand vinyl windows sold through Home Depot. Other past acquisitions include Eagle, an aluminum-clad wood window producer based in Dubuque, Iowa, and Emco Enterprises, a storm door manufacturer, both acquired in 2005; as well as KML Windows, a custom wood window producer based in London, Ontario, purchased in 2001.
Andersen has also expanded internally in recent years, especially in its Renewal by Andersen direct-to-consumer replacement window business, which operates a 227,000-square-foot plant in Cottage Grove, Minn., as well as nine company-owned retail locations. The manufacturer’s distribution arm, Andersen Logistics, operates distribution centers in California, Colorado, Indiana, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas and Wisconsin. Forbes Magazine ranked Andersen No. 202 among America’s largest private companies for 2012, estimating the window and door manufacturer’s annual revenues to be $2.2 billion.
After 50 years and more than 50 million units, Andersen gathered employees and retirees
as it ended production of its Narroline double-hung window recently.
