MERRILL, Wis. (WAOW) -- Sierra Pacific Windows announced Tuesday that they have reached an agreement to acquire the assets of Semco Windows and Doors.
In a press release from Sierra Pacific, President Tom Takach said the following: “The purchase of these assets will pave the way for some much-needed additional production capacity in both our wood and vinyl product lines. The newly acquired manufacturing space represents an additional 25 percent square footage, beyond our existing 1.1 million square feet. While the closure of Semco is very unfortunate, we are grateful for the opportunity to expand and stay ahead of the incredible growth of the Sierra Pacific Windows brand and all our product lines. While Sierra Pacific Windows will not be manufacturing Semco’s products, we are grateful to the Semling family, and will continue to honor their legacy of being a quality window manufacturer, solid employer, and members of the community in Merrill."
Merrill-based Semco, which crafted wood and wood-clad windows for nearly 80 years, went out of business on December 31, per the release. The 275,000-square foot facility and production equipment "will allow Sierra Pacific to expand its production capacity to keep up with growing nationwide demand for its wood and vinyl products," according to the release.
