On June 28th, 2017 Windsor Windows & Doors held their groundbreaking event at Norwalk City Hall. The company will build a new 160,000 square-foot manufacturing facility in Norwalk, Iowa on Highway 28 and Delaware Street. This new facility will be located on 27 acres of land in and the additional property will accommodate future expansion for the company.
Warren County and the City of Norwalk were able to create an incentive package to aid Windsor’s new endeavor in Norwalk. The incentives included Warren County Economic Development’s Opportunity Fund Grant, in the amount of $50,000, Tax Increment Financing, the Iowa Economic Development High Quality Jobs Grant, a Norwalk High Quality Jobs Grant, and roadway improvement assistance through Warren County.”
“We’re also looking forward to being able to create new job opportunities for hard-working Iowans and contribute to our state’s economy,” said Mark Rieser, President of Windsor Windows and Doors. Rieser lauded the Certified Site program, on which the new facility will be built upon. “Windsor’s Norwalk site was selected as a part of the Iowa Economic Development Association’s (IEDA) “Certified Sites” program, which means it is designated as “development-ready.” This certified site has a remaining 28.79 acres of developable land.
This new Norwalk facility will be Windsor’s fourth manufacturing facility in the United States. Windsor currently operates two other manufacturing facilities in West Des Moines and one in Monroe, North Carolina.
