LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, Ohio, Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Earthwise Group, LLC, a national network of locally owned, independent manufacturers of windows and doors, marked another year of double-digit sales growth in 2013. The group reported an 18-percent increase in sales last year compared to 2012 figures. In 2012, The Earthwise Group reported a 16-percent increase in sales compared to 2011 figures, despite ongoing economic uncertainty. While residential remodeling and construction accounted for the largest share of group revenues, the organization also completed several large commercial installations during the year, and anticipates that this market segment will offer additional growth opportunities in 2014.
"At The Earthwise Group, we believe that our annual industry-leading sales growth is a testament to the strength and mutual support that our member companies provide each other," said Mark Davis, executive director, The Earthwise Group, LLC. "We look forward to a successful 2014 as we continue to grow not only our sales, but also our membership and distribution capabilities."
Based on industry forecasts, Davis anticipates ongoing growth in new housing starts in 2014 as the housing market continues its recovery, and the residential segment leads overall construction market growth. Additionally, energy-efficient windows and doors remain a priority for homeowners, leading to an increase in the demand for vinyl windows and doors.
Drawing from the strength of its member companies, The Earthwise Group manufactures windows and doors that provide the perfect balance of form, function and energy efficiency. Products produced by Earthwise Group members consistently meet and exceed the rigorous standards set by Energy Star, the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), and the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA). The organization's windows and doors also carry the Made in USA Certified® seal.
Currently, there are 15 Earthwise manufacturing facilities, with distribution covering the majority of the eastern half of the United States.
