Seaway Manufacturing Corp. celebrates its 55th year in business in 2014. A manufacturer of vinyl replacement windows, doors and sunrooms, Seaway has been a fixture in Erie, Pa., since 1959. Today, Seaway remains family owned and operated, supplying remodeling contractors in more than 20 Eastern and Midwestern states with energy-efficient building components, the company reports.

"It's very gratifying for us to celebrate this milestone, especially as it accompanies a resurgence in our industry after several very challenging years," says Jana Goodrich, Seaway president. "Thanks to a wonderful group of employees and clients doing really high-quality work, we're here to celebrate an anniversary that really is a testament to the whole team."

Seaway Manufacturing began operations in 1959 as a fabricator of aluminum products, including storm doors and windows. "There are so many interesting chapters in the Seaway story," Goodrich says, "from my father-in-law's founding of the business to today, when Seaway is a woman-run company in an industry that is very much male-dominated. Seaway has remained a steady provider of employment in Erie and has improved countless thousands of homes. We're even more pleased to say that we can look ahead to our third generation of family stewardship with the addition of our son, Patrick, to the Seaway team in 2012."
