Velux to Expand North America Manufacturing

June 18, 2008
Skylight and roof window manufacturer Velux will expand its North American production operations—spending about $14 million and adding about 25 jobs, according to the Greenwood (S.C.) Index-Journal. The expansion will reportedly add more than 100,000 square feet for manufacturing and future product lines.

"Thanks to the high quality of our products and services, the strength of our brand reputation, and our outstanding workforce, we have enjoyed great success here in Greenwood, since opening our first plant nearly 29 years ago," John Pillman, Velux Greenwood Inc. president, told the newspaper. "This new facility will bring us up to seven plants and one distribution center with almost 400 employees. We look forward to continued growth and success in this community."

Velux did not return calls for further comment.
