Andersen Corporation, the window and door manufacturer, has broken ground on the second expansion of its Renewal by Andersen manufacturing campus in Cottage Grove, Minn.

This expansion will double the size of the company’s Value-Add Center, a 360,000-square-foot facility built in 2020 to support growing demand for Renewal by Andersen products. 

The facility accommodates manufacturing, warehouses, and office space.

The company now plans to add another 332,000 square feet to the facility, introducing 65 more dock doors, 250 trailer parking stalls for a future employee parking lot, and additional office space of at least 13,000 square feet. 

Once this second phase of the building is complete, 300 workers will support the entire Value-Add Center.

“We are proud to be America’s #1 brand for window replacement*,” said Andersen Chief Operating Officer Chris Galvin. “We’re pleased to continue to invest in our Renewal by Andersen headquarters operations here in Minnesota, building additional capacity for our growing business, increasing employment opportunities, and supporting the community.”

When the expansion is complete the Renewal by Andersen campus in Cottage Grove, which includes the Value-Add Center and the existing Renewal by Andersen facility, will total just over one million square feet.

The additional space means more storage for supplies and new shipping bays, allowing Renewal by Andersen to get products to retailers and homeowners faster, the company said.

“We are building for the future, and we will continue to lead the industry in growth,” said Renewal by Andersen President Troy Barrow. “The combination of a phenomenal homeowner experience and the best-in-class products produced by our manufacturing teams are driving this huge growth in demand and thus, this second expansion.”

Andersen said that in recent years it has achieved unprecedented growth driven in part by its products made with proprietary Fibrex engineered composite, including Renewal windows.

This expansion is part of the company's strategy to make significant investments to meet current and future demand for its Fibrex material-based products.
