JELD-WEN, the world's largest manufacturer of reliable windows and doors, announced today that the company has become the sole supplier of fiberglass doors for Brockway-Smith Company, known as BROSCO, one of the leading door distributors on the East Coast. The move greatly strengthens JELD-WEN's presence in the region and is an aggressive step for the company to help solidify the leadership position in the fiberglass door category, which has shown significant growth potential in recent years.
"We're thrilled about growing our partnership with BROSCO. This represents two major forces coming together to realize the incredible opportunities in the industry by delivering the quality and style that homeowners, architects and builders are looking for today," said Mark Brock, executive vice president of JELD-WEN.
While JELD-WEN and BROSCO have partnered for decades to supply wood (stile and rail), molded and custom carved doors to the Eastern region, the additional manufacturing and distribution of JELD-WEN's fiberglass line through BROSCO provides a strong business opportunity. BROSCO distributes hundreds of thousands of doors each year to dealers and retailers in states including New York, New Jersey and all the states of New England.
"We're excited about the breadth of the fiberglass line and the new designs JELD-WEN offers that, quite simply, no one else can match," said Charlie Smith, president and CEO of BROSCO. "It creates an even stronger alliance between two exceptional companies."
JELD-WEN will offer multiple styles and designs under four distinct fiberglass door lines, as well as introduce a wide variety of brand-new designs through BROSCO. Many of the new designs feature ODL glass. Known for years for award-winning technology and design that has helped innovate the fiberglass door industry, JELD-WEN product lines now distributed by BROSCO include the JELD-WEN Fiberglass Door Luxury, Architectural, Design Pro and Smooth Pro series. BROSCO also will carry JELD-WEN Steel exterior doors as part of the company's complete offering.
