General Information: In business for more than 36 years, Northeast Building Products has grown from a small 1,800 square foot jalousie and glass block basement window manufacturer to a full-service fabricator and distributor of vinyl, wood and aluminum windows and doors. Today, the company serves 7,000 customers including distributors, dealers and contractors, and produces more than a quarter of a million units per year, it reports. The company’s present day 250,000-square-foot facility houses more than 250 employees and features some of the most technologically-advanced equipment and systems in the industry, the company notes. Northeast Building Products continued to expand in 2011, adding three new warehouses. Joining its warehouses in Bridgeport, Ct., and South Plainfield, N.J., are facilities in Long Island, N.Y., Atlanta and Boston. These sites enable the company to service customers throughout the eastern seaboard. Northeast reports that its Crusader line of windows, which feature the Sashlite integrated sash technology, continues to expand. This year, the company rolled out a dual-pane R-5 window. The Philadelphia-based manufacturer also invested heavily in new equipment, including a fabricating center that automatically processes vinyl extrusions so that once completed, only welding is required. Also new is a profile coloration system that produces color vinyl extrusions for its Sashlite line. Northeast also added an automated glass cutting and edge deletion system that provides improved quality and productivity with superior throughput capacity. The company is making its largest investment in insulating glass equipment. A newly-purchased I3 Intercept line features a state-of-the-art 10-coil station capable of using stainless steel spacer for superior warm-edge performance. The new system is set up to receive GED’s new Automated Tri-Lite Assembly System (ATLAS) for triple glass fabrication, which will enable Northeast Building Products to produce triple glazed windows that comply fully with proposed 2013 Energy Star requirements.


Northeast continues to invest in a variety of new equipment to upgrade its
operations, including this vinyl processing system it added last year.
