SHARONVILLE, OHIO — Vinylmax Corp., a supplier of vinyl windows and doors to Midwest markets, has completed its move to a larger, more efficient manufacturing facility near Cincinnati.

``Our new location provides nearly double our previous floor space,'' President Jim Doerger said in a news release.

The relocation was announced in April.

The new, 100,000-square-foot building, which is less than three miles away from the old plant in Woodlawn, was needed to handle increasing business, he said.

``We're planning for 2,000 windows per day at full capacity,'' he said, declining to give current production figures.

All of the firm's 80 employees made the transition to the new plant, and Vinylmax now has the room to hire more as production increases, according to Doerger.

Vinylmax builds a variety of window and door products from Dayton Technologies Inc.'s extruded vinyl profiles.

Aluminum Co. of America's recent sale of Monroe, Ohio-based Dayton to Deceuninck Plastics Industries of Belgium is a good situation for Vinylmax, according to Doerger.

``Now Dayton is aligned with a worldwide vinyl extruding company,'' he said. ``Before they were always fighting for resources when they were just one of many companies owned by Alcoa.''
