Wausau Window and Wall Systems Celebrates 60th Anniversary
WAUSAU, WI Wausau Window and Wall Systems' employees celebrate the company's 60th anniversary with events recognizing past contributions and a commitment to future growth.
"More than a slogan, we're proud that many of our customer and employee relationships go back for decades and generations," said Jim Waldron, Wausau's President. "We believe that our 60 years in business is due in large part to our dedicated and talented team focused on delivering best-of-class products and service to our customers."
Founded in 1956 in Wausau, Wisconsin, the company engineers and fabricates window and curtainwall systems for commercial and institutional buildings. Wausau is one of the architectural businesses of Apogee Enterprises, Inc., a public company that provides distinctive solutions for enclosing commercial buildings and framing art.
"Supported with the financial strength and stability of our parent company, we have effectively managed our success through economic recession and recovery. We honor our commitments, continually invest in improvements and innovations, and enjoy a solid history of safety, corporate citizenship, industry leadership and positive growth," said Waldron. "As a growth-oriented business, we are strategically aligning our culture, processes and metrics. Looking ahead, we are on track to double the size of our business over five years. We are in the third year of our five-year journey to reach this goal."
"Before our new fiscal year begins in March, we plan to hire 30-35 people, joining our current 485 associates. We are actively seeking the right candidates in engineering, estimating, sales, operations, leadership and production," said Maureen Egan, Wausau's Vice President of Human Resources. "Our people are critical to our growth strategy, and Wausau is committed to investing in developing and retaining our talented team."
In addition to Wausau's experienced staff, other keys to the company's ongoing growth and success during the last 10 years include its state-of-the-art manufacturing center, new product and technology developments, continuous improvement initiatives, and investment in employee training.
