Hörmann High Performance Doors
In its fourth generation of family ownership, Hormann has invested approximately $10 million in its Hörmann High Performance Doors facility in Burgettstown, Pa. The 68,000-square-foot structure that opened in October 2013 houses a manufacturing plant, offices and a full-size showroom.
The new facility replaces one in Leetsdale, Pa., and is making the overall production process more efficient. “We have automated fabric cutters, automated tube welding for the end shafts, automated storage carousels for our hinges and automated parts carousels,” lists Peter Burnham, vice president of sales and marketing. Along with a conveyor that automatically feeds the fabric to the cutter, the company has invested up to $1 million for those five pieces of equipment, he estimates.
