Andersen Corporation Builds Manufacturing Hub in Goodyear, Arizona
The company plans to invest more than $105 million in a 500,000 square foot manufacturing and distribution facility and create more than 415 jobs during the first phase of this expansion.
Andersen anticipates a potential total investment of at least $200 million through future expansion of the campus. The campus will be owned and operated by Andersen Regional Manufacturing, Inc., a subsidiary of Andersen Corporation, and is expected to be operational in early 2020.
“Our vision is to make the world a better place by living up to the promise that everyone benefits from their association with Andersen, our employees, customers, distribution partners, suppliers, shareholders and the communities in which we live and work, which now includes Goodyear, Arizona,” said Andersen Chairman & CEO Jay Lund. “We are grateful for the many allies who are working alongside us as we embark on this important expansion of our business.”
Andersen’s Goodyear facility will manufacture Andersen 100 Series products. This expansion is part of the company’s strategy to increase capacity to support demand and expand its presence in the western United States. The products to be manufactured at the Goodyear plant will use a formulation of Andersen’s proprietary Fibrex material. “Andersen’s selection of Goodyear for its new facility will create hundreds of jobs and significant capital investment in the region,” said Arizona Governor Doug Ducey. “Manufacturing has always been a key driver of job creation and economic prosperity, and this project adds to Arizona’s diverse economic landscape.”
Sandra Watson, President & CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority said, “Arizona continues to be an ideal location for manufacturers like Andersen due to our abundant, high-quality workforce, affordable costs and geographic location with direct access to major world markets.”
“In turn, manufacturing projects positively impact our economy by creating high-quality jobs, deploying large capital investments and attracting a robust supply chain,” she said.
“Manufacturing has long been a staple of the Greater Phoenix economy,” says Chris Camacho, President & CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council. “Andersen Corporation’s new location in Goodyear is just the beginning of the impact they will have in the community. We congratulate them on their expansion and look forward to their continued growth.”
