Solar Innovations, Inc., a custom manufacturer of residential and commercial sliding, folding, and stacking glass walls, doors, windows, and screens; conservatories; sunrooms; greenhouses; skylights; and curtain walls; completes building expansion.

September 25, 2015 Pine Grove, Pa – Solar Innovations, Inc. completes expansion of the Company’s manufacturing space. The 30,000 sq. ft. expansion has doubled the size of one of Solar’s three buildings, increasing the overall size of the Company’s corporate office and manufacturing facility to 330,000 sq. ft.

The expansion has created additional space for storage as well as providing room for the Company’s growing vinyl composite product line. The vinyl composite line was formerly housed on the second floor of building 1’s manufacturing facility. Due to its locations, projects were required to be moved to and from the manufacturing floor using a forklift or freight elevator. Its new location will not only provide the vinyl team adequate room to work efficiently, but it has also created sufficient space for additional equipment and machinery. Implementing this change has not only allowed Solar Innovations, Inc. to continue expanding its manufacturing capabilities, but it has also shown a great increase in the team’s overall process.
