Andersen Corp. broke ground on its new manufacturing campus in Goodyear, Arizona. The company plans to invest more than $105 million in a 500,000 square foot manufacturing and distribution facility and create more than 415 jobs during the first phase of this expansion. The new facility will manufacture Andersen 100 Series products.
 
The campus will be owned and operated by Andersen Regional Manufacturing Inc., a subsidiary of Andersen Corp., and is expected to be operational in early 2020. This expansion is part of the company’s strategy to increase capacity to support demand and expand its presence in the western U.S., according to a company release.
 
The products to be manufactured at the Goodyear plant will use a formulation of Andersen’s proprietary Fibrex material that contains a blend of wood fiber, mostly reclaimed from Andersen manufacturing processes, and thermoplastic polymer, some of which is also reclaimed.
 
Business, government and community leaders including Andersen Chairman and CEO Jay Lund, Goodyear Mayor Georgia Lord, Arizona Commerce Authority Senior Vice President of Economic and Rural Development Keith Watkins, and Greater Phoenix Economic Council President and CEO Chris Camacho commemorated the occasion with a ceremonial groundbreaking. At the groundbreaking ceremony, Andersen announced a $25,000 donation to Habitat for Humanity Central Arizona to help create more affordable housing in Maricopa County.
