Quaker Windows and Doors Announces $10 Million Expansion
Quaker Windows and Doors announced a $10 million expansion plan for 2023. The expansion will include a 100,000-square-foot addition to the company's wood window and door manufacturing facility, dedicated to the production of Quartz Luxury and Quaker Residential products. This expansion will not only increase production capacity but also pave the way for new wood product offerings, planned for 2024.
In addition to the expansion of the wood manufacturing facility, Quaker is also investing in the creation of an Engineering and Innovation Center on the Freeburg, Missouri, campus. The center will focus on new product design and development, certified product testing, and equipment design and fabrication. This strategic investment in innovation will help the company stay at the forefront of the industry and maintain its commitment to producing top-quality innovative products for its customers.
The project is expected to be completed by March 2024, generating over 50 new employment opportunities with the support of the Missouri Department of Economic Development through its Missouri Works program. This collaboration ensures a seamless progression of the expansion project while fostering the state's economic growth and development.

"We're thrilled to announce this significant investment in our manufacturing capabilities and the creation of our Engineering and Innovation Center. This expansion will allow us to better serve our customers, continue to bring innovation to the market and increase our product offering. We're grateful for the support of the Missouri Department of Economic Development and its Missouri Works program, and we look forward to successful project completion in 2024," says Kevin Blansett, CEO of Quaker Windows and Doors.
