Top political and business leaders for the Phoenix area helped celebrate the recent grand opening of Reynaers’ North American headquarters in Phoenix.
“Reynaers had the choice of many other states to place its new headquarters and factory, but it chose Arizona,” U.S. Sen. John McCain told more than 110 Reynaers’ dealers, builders and architects from across the country. “We are immensely proud of that. Bringing new jobs to the state is what my office and the business leaders standing here with me today are all working for.”
Sen. McCain thanked global CEO Martine Reynaers and her team, including Reynaers North America CEO Graham Walsh, for choosing Arizona to capture the US and Canadian markets from its new 30,000-square-foot Phoenix headquarters.
Jim Waring, city of Phoenix vice mayor, said he was delighted to welcome Reynaers to the city. “We are proud to have you here as a leader in contributing to jobs creation and a stronger local and state economy.”
The state’s business leaders also expressed their support and encouragement. “Reynaers is a valuable asset in helping to achieve our mission of ensuring economic growth and prosperity for all Arizonans,” said Glenn Hamer, CEO of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce. “We look forward to working in close partnership with Reynaers.”
Said Rick Murray, CEO of the Arizona Small Business Association, “Reynaers is making a vital contribution to the American marketplace. Businesses like Reynaers are the engines that drive the economy.”
Reynaers, Inc., European manufacturer of aluminum glazing products, plans to create up to 150 jobs over the next three years in its nearly 30,000-square-foot manufacturing facility.
“We are thrilled to open our new headquarters in the US,” said Reynaers North America CEO Graham Walsh, “allowing us to meet the growing demand of architects and builders who want the highest quality materials and designs when specifying windows and doors for premium homes and multi-residential buildings.
“We feel Phoenix – with its access to world markets, ease of doing business, talented workforce and exceptional quality of life – was the perfect location for our North America headquarters,” said Graham.
Based in Duffel, Belgium, Reynaers is a global, family-owned business that employs more than 1,500 workers in 37 countries, exporting to five continents and more than 60 countries. Its Phoenix plant and headquarters now has more than 40 employees, including those in highly-skilled manufacturing jobs.
In addition, Reynaers has secured a select network of reputable dealers, fabricators, installers, architects and builders across the US, who specify its expansive portfolio of aluminum windows and doors to create some of the finest homes and buildings in the country.
With the benefit of being manufactured in America and designed in Europe, the Reynaers collection includes its distinctive Hi-Finity sliding doors, folding doors, sliding doors, panoramic windows and curtain walls – all integral elements to creating inspirational designs that allow maximum light, breath-taking views and sustainable energy values.
“Reynaers, Inc. has developed a market-leading product range that promises to provide a new generation of aluminum systems to the North America market,” said Graham. “We are very pleased that our offering is proving popular with American architects and builders, who feel our extensive portfolio of aluminum glazing products, European design concepts and unprecedented technical support add value to their business. We look forward to a mutually supportive and lucrative partnership in North America that reflects the leadership and values of Reynaers, which is celebrating its 50-year anniversary.”
