MI Closing Indiana Plant

November 20, 2008

MI Windows & Doors Inc. announced planson Nov. 20 to close its Lebanon, Indiana, window fabrication facility.  Originally built by CertainTeed Corp., the plant was acquired by MI in 2006.

“Our decision to close the Lebanon facility has been extremely difficult," says Matt DeSoto, president of MI's Eastern Division. "Anytime we affect team members and their families by eliminating jobs it comes with much concern and anxiety. The decision is not a reflection of how our team in Lebanon has performed, rather a necessary reaction due to the continued downturn in the housing market and the economy as a whole.”

The company will be redeploying the assets based in Lebanon to its other window fabrication facilities. “The team is dedicated to providing quality products and seamless service for our Lebanon based customers from MI Windows and Doors fabrication plants located in Pennsylvania and North Carolina,” states DeSoto.
