Atrium Closing Texas Plant

Atrium Cos. Inc., plans to close its Danvid Window facility in Carrollton, TX and consolidate operations into its existing Atrium Windows & Doors and HR Windows’ facilities in Dallas.

“This plant consolidation allows us to enhance a number of business operations and will result in significant cost savings,” says Bob Burns, COO for the Dallas-based manufacturer. “Additionally, it allows us to upgrade the vinyl window production at our Dallas facilities. The move is part of our strategic initiative to maximize our operating efficiencies while still delivering the same high quality products and service to our customers.” According to Burns, the closing of the Carrollton facility will affect approximately 230 employees. “We hope a significant number of people will decide to take positions offered to them at the other locations. Regrettably, not all positions will transition and we recognize that not all employees receiving offers will be willing to make the move to another location,” he notes.

Atrium has made the announcement to its Carrollton employees, as well to those Danvid customers affected by the realignment. In many cases, orders previously placed by Danvid customers have already been transitioned. “We expect this process to be seamless for our customers,” Burns states. The company anticipates the transition will be complete by mid-February.

Operating plants throughout the country, Atrium bills itself as the largest manufacturer of vinyl and aluminum windows in North America. The company’s portfolio of brands includes its flagship Atrium Windows & Doors brand, Superior Windows, Thermal Industries, Danvid Door & Window, HR Windows, Champion Window and Darby Door.
