SimEx Reaches Safety Milestone

March 21, 2011

Simonton Windows' vinyl extrusion company, SimEx, celebrated a milestone safety record las week of four consecutive years without a lost time injury.
“It wasn’t the luck of the Irish that helped us create this impressive safety record on March 17th–it was the dedication of the entire SimEx team,” says Dan Pennock, plant manager.

Located in St. Marys, W.V., SimEx operates 26 extrusion lines, plus a compounding and blending operation, and support departments. The plant also has a recycling operation, machining and tooling and maintenance departments.

“We believe, for any Simonton facility, that this is the longest consecutive safety achievement on record,” adds Pennock. “This landmark record comes as a result of our employees being exceptionally aware of safety aspects at the facility. Everyone is focused on safety features and procedures at SimEx.”
