General Information: One of North America’s largest manufacturers of vinyl and aluminum windows, Atrium operates multiple manufacturing facilities and distribution centers throughout the country with a multi-channel distribution network. The company’s flagship Atrium brand of windows and doors is produced in manufacturing plants in Dallas; Denver; Welcome, N.C.; Anaheim, Calif.; and Union Gap, Wash. Additional operations with dedicated distribution channels include Thermal Industries in Pittsburgh; Superior Windows & Doors in Ontario, Calif.; Danvid Door & Window and HR Windows in Dallas; Champion Window in Houston; Darby Door in Florence, Ala.; and North Star windows and doors in St. Tomas, Ontario, Canada. In order to reduce outstanding debt, Atrium filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and went through a restructuring process in 2010. As part of a restructuring plan, Atrium received a $125 million new equity investment from its long-time majority equity owner, Kenner & Co. Inc., and a new co-investor, Golden Gate Capital. As a result, it emerged from bankruptcy several months later with the resources “to take advantage of the eventual rebound in the housing market.” With its strengthened financial position, Atrium announced expansion plans later in the year, adding a new 120,000-square-foot manufacturing facility to extrude vinyl in Greenville, Texas. It also opened a new distribution warehouse in Sanford, Fla. In 2011, it consolidated some manufacturing operations. Production of Champion Window was moved from facilities in Houston to Atrium operations in Dallas.
