Solar Innovations, Inc., a custom manufacturer of residential and commercial sliding, folding, and stacking glass walls, doors, windows, and screens; conservatories; sunrooms; greenhouses; skylights; and curtain walls; completes building expansion.
September 25, 2015 Pine Grove, Pa – Solar Innovations, Inc. completes expansion of the Company’s manufacturing space. The 30,000 sq. ft. expansion has doubled the size of one of Solar’s three buildings, increasing the overall size of the Company’s corporate office and manufacturing facility to 330,000 sq. ft.
The expansion has created additional space for storage as well as providing room for the Company’s growing vinyl composite product line. The vinyl composite line was formerly housed on the second floor of building 1’s manufacturing facility. Due to its locations, projects were required to be moved to and from the manufacturing floor using a forklift or freight elevator. Its new location will not only provide the vinyl team adequate room to work efficiently, but it has also created sufficient space for additional equipment and machinery. Implementing this change has not only allowed Solar Innovations, Inc. to continue expanding its manufacturing capabilities, but it has also shown a great increase in the team’s overall process.
Solar Innovations, Inc. completed installation of its first vinyl composite window in April 2015. The unique make-up of Solar’s vinyl composite framework does not conduct heat or cold, therefore, outdoor temperatures will not transfer through the system to the interior of the structure. Solar’s durable, energy-efficient vinyl composite framework requires minimal maintenance, and repainting is not required. Solar Innovations, Inc.’s versatile composite vinyl provides end users increased flexibility and is available for several Solar Innovations, Inc. door and window configurations.
Solar Innovations, Inc.’s LEED Gold facility is located on a three-building 36 plus acre campus. The Company has experienced exponential growth since its inception in 1998. Its first facility was 10,000 sq. ft. and located in Hellam, PA with just 12 team members. Two years later, Solar moved to a 45,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility before relocating a final time to its current location in Pine Grove, PA in 2009. At that time, the corporate office and manufacturing facility consisted of 224,000 sq. ft. and 100 team members. Now, six years later, the facility has expanded to 330,000 sq. ft and the Company employs over 160 team members.
