MI Windows and Doors will be recommended for a Voluntary Protection Program Star by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, says the company. 

OSHA officials completed a three-day evaluation of the MI Profiles extrusion facility in Millersburg, Pennsylvania. The three-member OSHA team announced they would recommend Profiles for the award.

“This is an awesome moment,” says Jeff Paradise, MI’s Eastern vice president of manufacturing/extrusion. “This is six years of hard work coming to fruition.”
Started in 1982, OSHA’s VPP program was initiated to inspire companies to do their utmost in providing workplace safety. VPP is divided into “Merit” and “Star” categories. Approximately 2,200 jobsites in the U.S. – out of 8 million – have earned the Star.
The OSHA team’s recommendation will now be sent to the Department of Labor for official approval. Once Profiles’ status becomes official, MI will have three factories with VPP Star status. In addition to Profiles, MI’s Gratz, Pennsylvania, and Prescott Valley, Arizona, plants were awarded the Star in 2017. Plans are in motion for the company’s facilities in Texas and Hegins, Pennsylvania, to go through a VPP evaluation in the near future.
