Andersen Corporation plans an $18 million expansion project

Monday, May 12, 2014

Andersen Corporation has announced they are planning an $18 million expansion project.  The plan is to add on to their existing 3-million-square-foot complex in Bayport Minnesota   Part of the $18 million project fund will go towards the purchase of new machinery as well as create 100 more full time jobs.   “We see more upside in the future than risk, so we’re investing,” Andersen CEO Jay Lund said in an interview.  The facility will focus mainly increasing production of the very popular Andersen 100 series windows. Launched in 2009, the 100 line “was very successful; we sold our millionth unit last year. So we’re seeing lots of opportunity for growth,” Lund said.

To help in supporting the companies’ expansion, the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development will award Andersen $625,000 from the Minnesota Job Creation Fund if the company meets its performance goals.  “The assistance we received from DEED, and organizations such as Greater MSP, helped ensure this significant expansion happened in our home state,” says Jay Lund, Andersen chairman, president and CEO. “We had several location options to choose from and selected Minnesota because of the experienced workforce, our integrated supply chain model and the ability to leverage capacity at our flagship plant in Bayport.”

From Our Customers

We had a bad experience with a previous door installer/retailer. Then we heard good things on the radio about FAS so we went to see them in their warehouse and we were impressed with both the product and the people. We bought two sets of French doors and had them installed. We were also able to customize our lock and glass selection, as well as the decorative treatment of the doors and it worked very well. Their sales rep was very personable. He called in response to our call to set up a time and he arrived on time. He was very knowledgeable and very enthusiastic, and we very much enjoyed the opportunity to talk to him. He was certainly the first contact in our home that helped convince us to try them out.

Their installation team was very good and very professional. They came out, measured, and they showed up with the doors and the doors fit, which was nice. They had the materials they needed and they cleaned up afterwards. All in all, we were very pleased with the experience. They did a great job. FAS has a higher price but there was great value. Their quality’s terrific. They did a great follow-up as well, after the work was done. They called and verified if we were satisfied with the work, up to the permit inspection. They took care of taking off the labels and so forth, which were required to be let down for the permit.
