VENICE — Window and door manufacturer PGT Innovations plans to hire employees for over 150 positions throughout its manufacturing plants in North Venice, Hialeah, Miami and Tampa.
The company’s open roles include manufacturing technicians, forklift drivers, semi-truck drivers, loading technicians for its warehouse and dock operations, and roles within the accounting and credit departments, according to a press release. Candidates with all types of work backgrounds and skill sets are encouraged to learn more about the opportunities available.
To ensure the safety of applicants and PGT Innovations team members, all interviews will be conducted via telephone or video conference to accommodate social distancing and sheltering in place.
“PGT Innovations is looking for more incredible folks to join our team and build long-term careers with us,” says Jeff Jackson, PGT Innovations president and CEO, in a statement. “With the demand that we’re seeing for our products and hurricane season just weeks away, it’s more important than ever that our manufacturing teams at all of our facilities are fully staffed to produce our incredible products to serve the needs of homeowners.”
The hiring announcement comes a week after the company said it expects to cease production at its Orlando facility in June, where its WinDoor and Eze-Breeze products are assembled. It plans to relocate the manufacturing of those products to the company’s Venice and Tampa plants, respectively.
PGT Innovations employs more than 2,700 employees across its Florida facilities. It is the largest private sector employer in Sarasota County.
The PGT Innovations family of brands includes CGI, PGT Custom Windows and Doors, WinDoor, Western Window Systems, Eze-Breeze, CGI Commercial and NewSouth Window Solutions. The company reported $744.96 million in revenue in 2019.
