Pella Opens a Door for Ohio With New Manufacturing Facility

Fri Feb 26 2021

Headquartered in Pella, Iowa, Pella has been providing customers with quality doors and windows since 1926. With multiple awards along the way, Pella has become one of the largest window manufacturers in the U.S. The company has expanded to 18 manufacturing locations across the U.S. and Canada, with over 8,000 employees. After designing and manufacturing windows and doors for nearly 100 years, Pella has established itself as a leader in the field.

Committed to Customers

With windows and doors, customers expect an efficient product that will last and look pleasing to the eye. Pella’s success over the years shows its commitment to what customers want in windows and doors.

With a high standard in its products and customer service, Pella sought to reach even more customers in the U.S. While searching for its next manufacturing location, Pella was interested in an existing facility that would provide it with enough space to produce its vinyl products. Pella wanted an opportunity to increase production in the Eastern region of the U.S. and found its newest facility in Troy, Ohio.

Pella Invests in Ohio

With the help of its many partners in Ohio, including JobsOhio, the Dayton Development Coalition, Troy Development Council, and Ohio Development Services Agency, Pella will expand the production of its vinyl products even further. Ohio’s large, advanced manufacturing workforce was another factor in Pella choosing the state for business— with over 700,000 skilled individuals in the manufacturing sector, Ohio has the third-largest manufacturing workforce in the country.

The site in Troy is an existing 324,000 square-foot space and met the requirements in both size and function that Pella needed. This location will allow Pella to increase its overall production, reduce lead times, and help meet the demand for Pella products in the Eastern U.S.

With this new facility in Ohio, Pella is making significant financial investments into the project and creating more than 400 jobs.

“We are excited about the growth opportunity that vinyl products represent. This new facility allows Pella to increase our production capacity and shorten lead times for our valued retail and trade customers in the region.”
