Gorell Expands, Offers Jobs in PA & CO

INDIANA, PA – DespiteĀ a declining month of May in various indexes in the markets, Gorell Windows & Doors LLC managed to create 19 new jobs at their Indiana County, PA location. It would seem that there is hope for those who have been unemployed, after all, especially with a business dedicated to the community such as this. Gorell is a successful window manufacturer, comprised of around 370 employees, and that number is rising. This does not mean that while they may be offering jobs, their prices will be rising. On the contrary, as Brian Zimmerman told us in a recent interview, Gorell is “committed to Lean-manufacturing” which means that they want to manufacture the product as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. Their warehouses serve to make windows, not as some place to waste away the work day.

Just recently, Wayne Gorell, Chairman and CEO of Gorell Enterprises, was named among “Pennsylvania’s Top 100 People” for what he has done as an entrepreneur and as a member of the community. Gorell was always named on the Inc. 500 list of most rapidly growing and improving companies that are fairly new (Gorell was founded in 1994). This seems only fair, as Gorell is one of the largest employers in Indiana County, PA, and it’s only getting bigger: just this late March, three new production supervisors were hired, each to focus on one window line offered by Gorell.

Also, it was announced around March 25th that Gorell will be expanding into Colorado. Tom Traub has been elected Regional Sales Manager, the man responsible for establishing another successful location for Gorell at the site itself. Wayne Gorell commented that concerning plans beyond this, their “next logical step is farther west.” Certainly, the bullishness of Gorell’s business does not seem to be letting up, and admittedly, W. Gorell said, “Business has been improving steadily every week.” This growth is not something to ignore. Considering the company is not publicly traded, the next best economic step would be to invest in a product (that is, buying windows) that is backed by a company such as this, committed to continue the improvement.

When asked what he feels has allowed for all this success, Wayne Gorell answered, “rising consumer confidence and record increase in new business acquisitions” have certainly played major roles. Also, over the next four months, Gorell plans on continuing to hire more and more production employees. Certainly, expecting a good second half of 2010 would not be out of line for Gorell Windows.
