Andersen Windows Named Top Manufacturer; Also Scores WDMA Honors


July 27, 2021 | Bill Esler

Bayport, MN—Mark Mikkelson, Andersen’s director of corporate regulatory affairs, received the James Krahn Lifetime Achievement Award at the WDMA Technical and Manufacturing Conference.

The award recognizes individuals who have devoted significant time, energy, and effort toward creating and achieving the strategic initiatives of WDMA—promote, advance, and explore the possibilities for window, patio door, entry door, skylight and architectural doors manufacturers and their suppliers and customers.

Mikkelson received the award for his many years of service to WDMA, where he currently serves as chair of the WDMA Regulatory Affairs Committee. In addition to his current association position, he has had other leadership roles on several of WDMA’s codes and standards committees, taking the lead on many initiatives to improve window performance and safety standards.

Mikkelson’s employer was also honored by Window & Door Magazine as a Top Manufacturer in its annual manufacturing report. The magazine cites that the 2021 top manufacturers list reflects the unexpected strength of the market after much of the economy was shut down in 2020 due to COVID-19. While many economists issued unfavorable predictions about the economy, the building industry remained strong throughout the pandemic and continued to grow.

Recent expansions contributed to Andersen’s position in this year’s report. Over the last five years, Andersen’s growth has included a 60,000-sq.-ft. addition to its Bayport, MN, manufacturing facility; groundbreaking and completion of a 500,000-sq.-ft. manufacturing and distribution campus in Goodyear, AZ; and a 350,000-sq.-ft. expansion at its Renewal by Andersen manufacturing campus in Cottage Grove, MN.
