The callback comes in response to rising demand, due to the company’s active promotion of the new federal tax credits for windows and doors and the upturn in business that occurs each spring.
“Although the economy is still challenging, we’re seeing many positive signs that the country is coming out of this recession,” said Wayne Gorell, President & CEO. “Business has been improving steadily every week, and we’re anticipating a good second half of the year for 2009.”
In an industry in which many competitors are closing plants and laying off employees, Gorell now has every laid-off production worker back to work. Hourly employees are hired back based on tenure with the company. Gorell also typically hires additional new employee during the spring and summer months and is now accepting applications in preparation for this process.
Gorell manufactures windows for replacement and new-construction applications, patio doors and aluminum storm windows and doors. The company markets its products through a network of dealers and distributors.
