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.

From Our Customers

We wanted to get quotes from several contractors in the area so we contacted FAS. Their price is a little higher but they were better in answering questions and getting back with us. The sales rep made an appointment and he showed up when he said he would. He did a very good job of explaining the product lines that they had and why they were better quality than what we had in our 25-year old house. He followed up with us, answered our questions quickly and he's gotten the paperwork to us so that we can get the energy credit from Duke Energy. We're very happy with him. We got new windows for our home and they normally come with screens but we were able to get half screens where we wanted in full screens and they fitted the windows to all the openings exactly. My husband was really happy with the installation team and the quality is very good so far.
