Sierra Pacific Windows to Launch New Architectural Wall System Line in Spring 2016
Product launch comes as result of an asset acquisition from Westview Products, Inc.
Red Bluff, California (January 19, 2016) – Sierra Pacific Windows is launching a new architectural wall system product line in spring of 2016. The announcement comes on the heels of its December 30, 2015, asset acquisition from Dallas, Oregon-based Westview Products, Inc.
The newly acquired high-end, architecturally-driven wall system line, also known as an engineered or structural wall system, is built with an extruded aluminum exterior and an all-wood interior. The wood interior distinguishes the line from competitive offerings — providing structural integrity and a unique aesthetic. This unique structural wall system can also accommodate operating Sierra Pacific windows for ventilation and greater design flexibility.
The acquisition dovetails with the company’s commitment to continuous growth in products, manufacturing, systems, marketing, distribution and personnel. The new line will expand Sierra Pacific’s single-source supplier niche, reinforcing its position as the most vertically-integrated wood window company in America. Sierra Pacific Windows Vice President of Business Development and Customer Service Bob Taylor said, “The wood wall system is a perfect complement to Sierra Pacific’s product portfolio, and fits in nicely with our distribution channels.”
Taylor explained that the growth potential of the wall system category, in particular, is significant. “It’s a niche market that’s being dramatically fueled by current design trends: expansive glass, clean straight lines, transparency between indoor and outdoor living, and architecture showcasing minimalist design with walls of glass.”
The line is highly customizable, and Sierra Pacific Windows works in close partnership with architects to bring their vision to life. It is ideally suited for a variety of segments, including high-end residential; health care; religious; office; education; hospitality; entertainment/sporting facilities; mixed use (urban); and government.
Westview Products, Inc. was formed in the late 1970s by a group of professionals who had come together to create a sunroom system for a custom home being built in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. By the 1980s, Westview Products had grown to be a Northwest leader in the design and manufacturing of wall and slope glazing products systems.
