After product presentations and discussions, the group moved to the manufacturing floor where construction is in full swing. Morganton employees and VEKA executives fielded questions from guests while walking through the facility.

Joe Peilert commented, “Business is strong. In support of customer growth, VEKA added this fourth, 163,000 square foot extrusion facility to its mix, bringing the total manufacturing floor space in North America to 1.2 million square feet, solidifying its position as the largest window and door extrusion company in the US.”

The total investment will exceed $10M dollars and is expected to create 80 jobs within two years of operation. VEKA East will be able to accommodate up to 30 extrusion lines and include manufacturing support, value added services, offices and a warehouse. Operations are expected to start in the second half of 2018.
