Middleton, WI – June 3, 2019 -- Springs Window Fashions, a leader in window treatments since 1939 and a pillar in the Middleton community, announced plans today to begin a multi-million dollar building renovation to its headquarters. Built in 1964, the facility is home to more than 500 employees and includes a 400,000 square-foot manufacturing/finishing plant. The renovation, which is expected to last approximately one year, will be led by local design and construction firms, OPN Architects and Ideal Builders. The announcement was made by Eric Jungbluth, President and CEO of Springs Window Fashions.
“We are excited to announce a major renovation to our corporate headquarters,” stated Jungbluth. “Not only will this renovation provide a fresh appearance and modern amenities for Springs' colleagues and customers, but it will also serve as a foundation for our aggressive and immediate growth plans.”
Among changes to the facility will be the complete redesign of the corporate headquarters, a new state-of-the-art training facility and an on-site fitness center. The training center will host customers and sales representatives who receive continuing education by Springs Window Fashions. The center will feature hands-on training across a large range of products and brands.
"Starting with elements of the existing building's midcentury aesthetic, the new design will reinforce the original architecture with a clean, contemporary exterior design and composition," stated Wesley Reynolds, Principal, OPN Architects. "Embracing natural light throughout the project was a priority by the entire team. Exterior solid walls are being replaced with full height windows, interior walls have been minimized to promote views to the outdoors, and skylights are being installed in centralized open office areas to provide access to daylight. We have designed a space that will enhance everyone's daily work life."
This is one of several substantial changes Springs Window Fashions is making for future growth. "In the last year alone, we've made significant investments in manufacturing and information technology, and developed a new consumer-and customer-centric marketing approach," added Jungbluth. "This renovation of our headquarters is an important component of our growth plans and will enable us to expand our presence here in Middleton."
During the renovations, all Springs Window Fashions employees will remain in the current building; albeit in different spaces to accommodate the construction. Daily business functions will experience no disruptions.
