On July 14th, Pella Windows & Doors of New England held a groundbreaking for a new 24,000 sq ft facility at the Granite State Business Park.
David Hadley, owner and CEO, welcomed the crowd to the site of their new distribution center and office building.
“Sucess in business and success in life is about surrounding yourself with the right people and we have a worldclass team that has been working on this project,” said Hadley “I want to thank the City of Rochester for being so welcoming to us. We’re looking forward to being valuable members of the community.”
Several municipal leaders and state representatives were in attendance. Some provided written statements congratulating Pella on their expansion to Rochester, including U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen.
