Quaker Begins Construction on New Missouri Plant

Glass Magazine

Quaker Windows and Doors purchased 127 acres in Eldon, Missouri, and began construction on a new 200,000-square-foot commercial and architectural products production facility. The land purchased will also allow for the construction of additional manufacturing facilities in the future, according to the company.

 Quaker’s current operations consist of corporate offices along with wood, vinyl, aluminum window and door manufacturing facilities located on two campuses in Freeburg, Missouri. With more than 950 employees, the company produces a variety of AAMA-certified high performing residential, commercial and architectural window and door products.
 
“We are excited to bring new jobs to the Eldon region as part of our strategic growth plans, moving forward to support our customers’ needs and market demand,” says Quaker CEO Kevin Blansett. “This expansion is about growing our commercial and architectural window and door production capacity for years to come, while continuing to enhance our vinyl and wood production capacity on the main campus to effectively meet the growing needs of our lumberyard and residential customers.”
 
Quaker opened a 185,000-square-foot facility for high performing wood windows and doors in January of 2018. The company also expanded its ModernVu/M600 Architectural Aluminum Door line in their former wood facility in 2018, and an insulating glass plant in 2017. Quaker constructed a new commercial and residential vinyl facility in March of 2016.
