Leading manufacturer of vinyl windows and fiberglass entry systems to invest $6.5 million in Swainsboro facility
Swainsboro, GA — Governor Nathan Deal announced that Wincore Window Company LLC, a leading American manufacturer of premium vinyl windows and fiberglass entry door systems, will create 150 new jobs and invest $6.5 million in a manufacturing facility in Swainsboro.
“Our highly skilled workforce, proximity to the Southeastern market and unmatched logistics infrastructure continue to attract industry-leading manufacturers like Wincore Window Company to Georgia,” said Deal. “Wincore’s choice of Emanuel County reflects Georgia’s commitment to providing industry leaders with the best resources to compete nationwide. With this investment, Wincore will build upon the strategic resources of the No. 1 state for business to spur further economic growth in the Swainsboro community and create quality jobs for Georgians. We welcome Wincore to Georgia and look forward to the company’s success here in our low-tax, business-friendly climate.”
Wincore products include both new construction and retrofit vinyl windows and sliding patio doors, as well as a full line of classic and decorative glass fiberglass entry systems. The company also produces a line of impact-resistant vinyl windows, sliding patio doors and fiberglass entry systems specifically designed for coastal areas.
“We looked at several regions in the southeast and very quickly decided that Swainsboro was an extremely good fit for Wincore’s strategic expansion plans,” said Clark Davis, president of Wincore. “Based on early discussions with Ken Warnock at the Emanuel County Economic Development Authority (Emanuel County EDA) and Ryan Waldrep at the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD), Wincore’s management and ownership believed the new plant would have tremendous support from both the county and the state. Those early interactions proved to be correct as the county and the state have been incredibly flexible in structuring programs that will allow Wincore to succeed. We truly thank the leadership at the county level and state level and look forward to a long, successful partnership.”
Wincore currently employs 340 people nationwide. The company will occupy an existing 75,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Swainsboro and begin operations in April 2019.
“This is tremendous news for Swainsboro and Emanuel County, and just emphasizes once again how teamwork and persistence pay off,” said Swainsboro Mayor Charles Schwabe. “Wincore will be a great addition to our manufacturing community and I especially want to commend our Emanuel County EDA and GDEcD for their outstanding work in bringing this project to Swainsboro.”
GDEcD Regional Project Manager Ryan Waldrep represented the Global Commerce Division in partnership with the Emanuel County EDA and Georgia Quick Start.
“It’s a great day in Georgia when we have the opportunity to announce new jobs for our citizens,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “Our strong network of suppliers, access to an advanced manufacturing workforce and a welcoming community in Emanuel County create the ideal place for companies such as Wincore to thrive.”
