Dashwood Industries Inc. has announced the relocation of its operations to accommodate its continued growth and future expansion plans for its window and door business. Dashwood is pleased to announce the forthcoming relocation of its head office and business operations to Strathroy Ontario. Located on Centre Road on the perimeter of Strathroy, the new location will provide ample space for manufacturing, engineering, sales and services as well as customer support for the business.
The addition of a product showroom will allow Dashwood to showcase its Energy Efficient solutions to its current and potential clients as well as assist in promoting the added value Dashwood provides its customer during the home building or renovation experience. As Dashwood will renovate the building in order to prepare for the business relocation, it will continue to operate from the current location in Centralia, Ontario throughout the remainder of 2019. Dashwood does not expect any additional downtime in the operations than normally experienced with a Christmas Holiday shutdown as new production equipment has been procured and will be delivered directly to the Strathroy location in 2019. The Strathroy facility in 2019 will focus on renovations, equipment set-up, validation and preparation for the January 2020 start-up.
“We were fortunate to find such a fitting and well-served space. We really wanted to limit the impact that relocation could have on our customers and our employees. I don’t think we could have found a better location for our team. Our new location and enhanced operational efficiencies will help us continue to grow and develop to keep pace with our customer’s needs, allowing us to provide exceptional value and superior service along the way,” said Dennis Foran, President of Dashwood Industries Inc.
Dashwood Industries Inc. is a Canadian owned and operated manufacturer of made-to-order custom window and door systems. Originally founded as Dashwood Planing Mill in Dashwood, Ontario in 1928, Dashwood introduced the first pre-fit and pre-assembled windows in the 1940s. Due to an increasing demand for their product, Dashwood expanded and moved to the location outside of Centralia, Ontario in 1964. The Dashwood product offering includes a full range of windows and premium entry, terrace and patio doors for new construction, renovation and replacement applications distributed throughout Ontario and into select regions of the United States. As Dashwood ownership considered that the current location restricted opportunities for growth, they decided to purchase the Strathroy location.
