• Company celebrates milestone at all locations

Larson Manufacturing celebrated a major milestone earlier this week. The Brookings-based manufacturer built its 50 millionth storm door and window unit since beginning business in 1954.

Company officials say 50 million units far surpass any other storm door or storm window manufacturer.

The company held employee celebrations at its South Dakota and North Carolina locations Sept. 20 and their Iowa and Minnesota locations Sept. 21.

“We’ve been building storm doors for 57 years and have a history of adding value in our products, understanding our customer needs and sharing in our success with our employees.” said Jeff Rief, president and CEO of Larson Manufacturing. “Larson employees take great pride in the product they build, and it shows.”

Rief, along with Dale Larson, chairman of the board for Larson, thanked employees for their dedication through the years.

“You don’t get to 50 million doors without a lot of hard work from a lot of people,” said Larson. “We make a great quality product right here in America, and back it up with the best service in the industry.”

Larson is the No. 1 selling storm door in America, a place it has held for the past 15 years. It is sold through several big box retailers, lumberyard chains, and local lumberyards and hardware stores.

Family-owned Larson Manufacturing has plants in Brookings; Lake Mills, Iowa; Clear Lake, Iowa; and Mocksville, N.C.

It distributes products through its own centers and employs a sales force throughout the United States.
