Manufacturing is the heartbeat of America’s economy, and a skilled workforce is at the core of manufacturing. It’s one of the components that has made us an industry leader for over 100 years. It’s how we are able to produce beautiful windows and doors that make a difference in people’s lives. In fact, nine years before automaker Henry Ford came up with the idea of standardization, Andersen developed the most innovative and efficient frame distribution method of its time, the “two-bundle” method of packaging, which allowed us to benefit from mass production and the use of interchangeable parts.
To this day, we continue to innovate and help build on our rich, 100-year-plus heritage.
Earlier in October, Andersen welcomed local high school students to our Bayport, Oak Park Heights and Cottage Grove facilities for our Manufacturing Day event. Pre-Engineering students had an opportunity to take a unique, inside look at our facilities and tour our plants for a day. The tours were led by engineers; most of them recent graduates, so that the students could learn firsthand about the tour guides’ experience at Andersen, their educational background and our manufacturing methods.
