Wojan Window & Door has begun a two-phase expansion project at its Charlevoix, Mich. manufacturing facility.

Phase 1 broke ground on July 5th with the infill of two shipping wells and partial demolition of a small parking lot to make way for two above-ground shipping docks. This will allow the company to consolidate all shipping activity at the south end of the building and adds 1,200 square feet of production space.

The second part of Phase 1 is a 12,000 square foot addition to the warehouse at the north end of the building. Construction of this addition will begin shortly after the shipping docks are completed.

Phase 2 is scheduled for summer of 2019 and includes a 18,000 square foot addition to the glass production area with the goal of expanding and further automating their IGU production.

When the expansion is complete, it will increase the size of the Charlevoix facility to 85,000 square feet. Many other improvements are planned in addition to the building expansion, including a total plant floor resurfacing, acquisition of new material handling equipment and the installation of a new conveyor system.

Having long been a leader in providing windows to the hospitality sector, Wojan fueled its own growth and diversification in the last decade by launching new product lines such as blast-resistant, small missile impact and double-hung windows, two lines of sliding glass doors, and in May, launched their all-new custom engineered terrace door.

The sales growth has allowed Wojan to hire new staff at both its Charlevoix and Coldwater, Mich. facilities in production, engineering and quality, and eventually made it necessary to consider and ultimately move ahead on this plant expansion.

 Wojan will post pictures and updates to social media under the hashtag #WojanExpansion2018.
