Jeld-Wen is closing window manufacturing facilities in Vista, Calif., and Hawkins, Wis. The manufacturer said the decisions are “a further step in Jeld-Wen’s transformation journey to strengthen the foundation of the company and position itself for long-term profitable growth.”

As a result of the closures, Jeld-Wen said it expects to incur one-time costs of approximately $45 million and generate pre-tax income improvements of at least $11 million.

The Vista, Calif., facility manufactures composite windows sold under the Auraline brand name. Jeld-Wen said the Auralin line will be discontinued. The company said “multiple market factors” made it “prohibitive” to sustain its composite windows product line.

Jeld-Wen projects it will incur one-time costs in 2024 of approximately $21 million related to the Vista closure.

The Hawkins, Wis., facility manufactures wood windows and employs approximately 340 associates. Jeld-Wen said the site will be consolidated into the company’s wood windows manufacturing facility in Rantoul, Ill. It expects to incur one-time costs of $24 million.
