Milgard Closing & Shutting Down


"In response to the challenging economy and state of the new residential construction and remodeling industries, Milgard Windows and Doors will close its Hollister, Calif., and Phoenix, Ariz., facilities. The company previously announced the closing of its Chicago facility."

They have let go of hundreds if not thousands of employees with these shutdowns.

Do you think Milguard will be around 5-10 years from now?

Milgard Closing & Shutting Down


Both of those links are over a year old and refer to the IL plant only... Where did you get this info on the CA plant? I just received the latest WD Weekly this am and there was nothing about this????

If that is true, it's a bit scary. If not, I would not be too worried as Milgard was never really HUGE in the Midwest (regarding the IL plant closing).

I don’t see them going anywhere. Milgard is huge on the West Coast. It’s just a sign of the times, if nobody’s building you simply don’t need as many windows. Sacramento will take up the slack of the Hollister plant so customers won't be affected. In fact Milgard just completed a huge expantion of it’s plant here in Oregon cutting the turn around time from three weeks to ten days.
