What Have Big Window Brands Done for Me? Spotlight on PGT Industries
PGT produces a stellar product, but their company retains that hometown feel. It’s the kind of company that you know you can trust—their culture, leadership and corporate practices simply encourage it—but at the same time, they keep the standard high for quality engineering and stunning windows. Since the company’s founding in 1980, they have expanded to employ more than 1,300 people and have two manufacturing plants, one in North Venice, Florida, and the other in Salisbury, North Carolina.
Every company has core values, but PGT is one company that keeps these core values where they ought to be—right at the core. This shows in the way that they get involved in their communities and help individuals and organization in the United States and around the world.
PGT primarily focuses on helping local agencies and nonprofit organizations in their communities. They realize that giving back is fulfilling and richly beneficial. However, they also generously contribute to the following organizations:
Make-A-Wish Foundation. Usually, dreams don’t come true, but for children with life-threatening medical conditions, they can—through the power of generous givers like PGT.
American Cancer Society. Realizing that cancer is one of the nation’s largest menaces, PGT gives to the community-based voluntary health organization of the American Cancer Society. By education, research, innovation and protection, the American Cancer Society helps millions of Americans who suffer from this potentially fatal disease.
Muscular Dystrophy Association. Though often overlooked, those who suffer with muscular dystrophy live the remainder of their lives in discomfort, and are dependent upon the constant care of others. PGT makes it possible for more children and adults with muscular dystrophy to get the attention and treatment they need.
PGT has an open-door policy for other charitable and nonprofit organizations who wish to request the support of the company.
In addition to their unselfish outlay of financial resources, company executives give of their time and abilities. They are sought-after for their management savvy and rich experience, providing advice to students and in seminars.
PGT has increased their foray into sustainability and green building. Just recently, they expanded their product line of windows that qualify for federal energy tax credit. This will help homeowners struggling to manage rising energy costs, and will limit the amount of energy needed to heat or cool homes. PGT celebrates Earth Day in earnest, and recently partnered with LEED Depot in a “Greening of Chamber South” venture, which promoted energy-efficient technology and building products.
