For the first time in its 38-year history, All Weather Windows will open its plant doors to the public during their annual Habitat For Humanity Blitz Build volunteer day.

This Saturday, in conjunction with their annual Really-Really-Really Big Clearance event, the Edmonton-based window and door manufacturer will offer public and media plant tours throughout the day while All Weather Windows employees volunteer their time to build windows that will be used in several new Habitat For Humanity homes across the country.

“We want to give Edmontonians a first-hand look at how our windows are made and the Habitat For Humanity Blitz Build is the perfect opportunity,” said Jillene Lakevold, Director of Corporate Strategy and Relations at All Weather Windows. “This will be an exciting day not only for the Habitat families as they watch the windows of their new homes take shape before them, but for us as we open the doors to our plant for the first time in our history.”

The Blitz Build is an annual event at the Edmonton All Weather Windows manufacturing plant.  87 Edmonton employees will volunteer their Saturday to build windows that will supply about 40 Habitat for Humanity homes across Canada.

“Our organization is incredibly grateful for the kindness and generosity of All Weather Windows and their amazing staff,” said Alfred Nikolai, President and CEO of Habitat For Humanity Edmonton. “They help us to provide a better, healthier and more financially stable life to our partner families.”

The Edmonton manufacturing plant is 250,000 square feet, employs over 1,000 people and produces up to 28,000 windows every day.
