MEDFORD, WIS. (Jan. 6, 12 p.m. ET) — Hurd Windows and Doors Inc. is consolidating production for its vinyl manufacturing unit Superseal Windows and Doors in Merrill, Wis., and turning the existing Superseal facility in New Jersey into a distribution space.

Hurd, based in Medford, Wis., purchased residential vinyl window and door maker Superseal of South Plainfield, N.J., in January 2011. In July, it announced it was opening a second plant in Merrill – within its existing manufacturing footprint there – for production of Superseal products. Hurd also has glass and wood production lines in Merrill.

In a Jan. 4 news release, Hurd officials said it will transition manufacturing to Wisconsin during January. Some casement windows already are being made in Merrill.

The shift to Wisconsin will provide a more central location for Superseal’s brand as Hurd takes it to a wider national and international customer base, said President and CEO Dominic Truniger.

“The move makes a lot of sense as we can now utilize the existing Hurd transit lines in addition to taking advantage of newer high-tech equipment in the manufacturing process,” he said.

Hurd expects to employ 50 people at the Superseal plant in Wisconsin by mid-2012, and up to triple that number when it reaches full capacity.

The New Jersey operation will house a distribution and warranty parts center as well as customer and field service operations.
