PGT Industries is closing down?
 
 
Well, that's not the whole truth. The manufacturing plant in Salisbury, North Carolina will shut down at the end of the second quarter of 2011. According to Salisbury Post, an employee revealed the date of the last day, June 30th. The lay-offs will begin January 15th, 2011. About 490 jobs will be lost.

“We expect that the consolidation of manufacturing operations to our Florida facility will enhance long-term competitiveness and improve efficiencies,” reported by Rod Hershberger, CEO of PGT Industries. “We continue to make good progress in executing our strategy during a very difficult economic and market environment."  Furthermore, the company has been scheduled to receive tax breaks for two more years if the workforce doesn't drop below 300 employees. Not to mention, the company would receive $600,000 from Sarasota County for their relocation change to have their local operations there.
 
We wish PGT Industries the best of luck as they make this change. FAS Windows & Doors have and still carry PGT Industries products. We offer aluminum windows and doors from PGT. To see more of their products, come by our showroom. If you are looking for free estimates, contact us!

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.
