Quaker Windows and Doors Expands Eldon, Missouri, Manufacturing Operations

Quaker Windows and Doors, a manufacturer of top-quality windows and doors, plans to expand operations in Eldon, Missouri. The more than $30 million project is expected to create 220 jobs.

The investment will include the addition of a vertical paint line and increased capabilities for insulating glass production. The expansion is scheduled for completion by the Fall of 2025.

“This project is part of Quaker's ongoing investment in our future,” said Kevin Blansett, CEO of Quaker Windows and Doors. “Expanding our paint, thermal-fill, and glass capabilities is essential in supporting increased capacity needs for our commercial, residential, and luxury customers throughout the country.”

The project is being supported by the Missouri Works program, a tool that helps companies expand and retain workers by providing access to capital through withholdings or tax credits for job creation.

“We’re thrilled to see Quaker continuing to grow and create even more opportunities in Eldon,” noted Michelle Hataway, Director of the Department of Economic Development. “As a longstanding community partner and quality employer, Quaker’s success in central Missouri is helping Missourians prosper. Our team is grateful to support this leading manufacturer alongside our partners as it embarks on the next chapter of its inspiring story.”

Quaker consists of three divisions: Quaker Residential, Quartz Luxury Residential, and Quaker Commercial. The company specializes in making quality replacement and new construction windows & doors in vinyl, wood, and aluminum materials, as well as storm windows.

“The expansion of Quaker's footprint in Eldon is another example of how businesses are prospering in our service territory,” added Mark Birk, President and Chairman of Ameren Missouri. “We are thrilled they chose to grow their business in central Missouri by investing in new technology and new jobs, which benefits the entire local community. Ameren Missouri’s Smart Energy Plan continues to be instrumental in making the region more attractive for businesses to grow here while also providing reliable energy to power the communities we serve.”
