CRANBERRY, Pa. — A company that makes windows and doors plans to hire 280 full-time and seasonal workers at its plant near Pittsburgh.

Alcoa Inc. bought the window company, Traco Inc., in August. And now an Alcoa spokesman tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review the aluminum giant plans to add workers at Traco's plant in Cranberry, about 20 miles north of Pittsburgh.

Spokesman Kevin Lowery says about half of the workers hired will be permanent, full-timers. The other workers will also work full-time, but will be hired on a seasonal basis.

Lowery says the hires will bring the plant's work force to about 900.

Traco is part of Alcoa's building and construction systems business and expects to do more business as the economy recovers and construction increases.
