Peachtree Closing Georgia Plant
The Peachtree Door & Window plant in Gainesville, Ga., will be closed in February, with production of foamed patio and entry doors moved to the Weather Shield Manufacturing facility in Park Falls, Wis., according to a company news release. Workers at the Georgia manufacturing facility were notified at the end of November.

The closure is designed as a cost-saving measure, allowing the company to deliver complete orders, with entry doors and windows together in a single shipment, and reduce the manufacturing costs of those products, Amy Lewis, a Peachtree spokeswoman told the Wausau Daily Herald.

Both the Peachtree Cos. and Weather Shield are owned by the Schield family of Medford, Wis. The Peachtree operations include Peachtree Door & Window and SNE Enterprises, acquired from Nortek Inc. in 2001. They sell windows and doors under the Peachtree, Crestline and Vetter names and continue to operate manufacturing plants in Mosinee, Wis., and Huntington, W.Va.

In addition to the Park Falls plant, Weather Shield operates manufacturing facilities in Medford, Ladysmith and Greenwood, Wis., and Logan, Utah.
