MI Windows and Doors Expands Gratz Borough, Pennsylvania, Production Center
The company is expanding manufacturing capacity at its headquarters in Gratz Borough by constructing a 90,000-square-foot addition to its existing facility, adding two production lines and a glass room.
“We have a rich history in Central Pennsylvania, and we’re excited to expand our presence here,” said MI CEO Matt DeSoto. “This project will add great-paying jobs and increase our production capabilities, making it a win-win for our team, our community, and our customers.”
MI received a funding proposal from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development as an incentive for a $485,000 PA First grant, a $291,000 grant for workforce training, and was encouraged to apply for a $2.4 million low-interest loan through the Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority (PIDA). The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team, an experienced group of economic development professionals who report directly to the governor and work with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania.
“Committed to creating jobs and products in manufacturing since 1947, MI Windows has had a longstanding presence in Pennsylvania and we are thrilled to see their continued growth,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “This expansion will build on our commonwealth’s historic legacy in manufacturing and bring new, family-sustaining jobs to Central Pennsylvania.”
