Little Rock-based Windsor Door announced Wednesday (June 12) it will grow manufacturing capacity with a $21 million production line expansion. The manufacturer and distributor of residential garage and commercial sectional overhead door products said the new line will help meet rising demand.

“Since 1964, Windsor Door’s reputation has been renowned for building garage doors that are reliable, functional and aesthetically appealing,” said Bob Strahan, president of Windsor Door. “This new production line signifies our commitment to drive innovation in our processes, products and responsiveness to customer needs.”

The new product features high-strength steel, heavier-duty construction, and sets a new standard for durability and performance, the company said. Additionally, the production line doubles Windsor Door’s purchase position from Arkansas steel mills.

In addition to meeting industry demands, the investment brings substantial economic gains for the community. At full capacity, the line doubles the plant’s output, creating numerous direct and indirect jobs in Arkansas and other parts of the company’s footprint.

“We are proud to create products that contribute to homes and communities where memories are made and lives are built,” said Hans Wright, CEO of Windsor America. “This project reflects Windsor Door’s commitment to setting an example for all building product manufacturers and our role in making homeownership more affordable.”

“When Arkansas businesses grow, our entire economy grows with them,” said Governor Sarah Sanders, who spoke at Wednesday’s ribbon cutting. “Today’s announcement is great news for Windsor Door and its Central Arkansas employees – but it’s also a win for our steel industry, our home builders, our logistics companies, and everyone who works at and benefits from these homegrown businesses.”

Established in 1946, Windsor Door is a family-owned manufacturer of residential and commercial garage doors.

“Congratulations to Windsor Door on expanding in Arkansas with a $21 million investment,” said Clint O’Neal, executive director of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission. “Windsor Door’s new state-of-the-art production line is a testament to the company’s success, and we look forward to their continued growth in the Natural State.”
