It will produce Kawneer entrances, framing products and windows. This campus approach to manufacturing offers four extrusion presses and full finishing capability, including paint and state?of?the?art anodizing, which is currently being installed.
Kawneer and Hernando management are working to implement plans for an accelerated expansion of the window product line in response to strong demand from customers, particularly those involved in the remodel and retrofit construction market.
The 285,000 square-foot facility includes a significant expansion of 75,000 square feet and will allow for future growth. Kawneer plans to double the work force at Hernando by early 2003. The facility will be fully compliant with existing and planned environmental standards and regulations. In addition, the strong existing management team has been supplemented with key Kawneer personnel who understand the architectural aluminum products industry, its customers, products and processes.
