KLAMATH FALLS, ORE. (Dec. 17, 2:25 p.m. ET) — Window and door fabricator Jeld-Wen Inc. will invest $2 million to open a North American headquarters in Charlotte, N.C., creating at least 142 jobs over the next two years, state officials announced Dec. 13.

Jeld-Wen’s global headquarters will remain in Klamath Falls.

The building products maker currently employs 260 people in North Carolina, at two door factories, in Lexington and Marion.

Jeld-Wen, owned by Onex Corp., the Canadian private equity firm, makes windows and doors from a variety of materials, including vinyl, wood, aluminum and composites.

The North Carolina Economic Investment Committee awarded Jeld-Wen a Job Development Investment Grant. Jeld-Wen is eligible to get a grant equal to 60 percent of the state’s personal income withholding taxes derived from the creation of new jobs for each of the nine years when the company meets annual targets — a maximum of $2.45 million.
