A Lesson in Efficiency

In 2010, an alliance was created between PCS Residential in Eagan, Minn. and the Minneapolis branch of Pella Windows and Doors. By working with Pella and taking advantage of Pella's prefinished trim service and interior prefinished windows, PCS has been able to increase productivity and improve their overall margin.

Increased Efficiency Leads to Higher Profits

When PCS Residential realized they weren't finishing their jobs on time, they knew they had to make a change. So they teamed up with Pella and cut their process time by up to 25%.

How SkillsUSA and Pella are Impacting the Future

As a proud supporter of the #KeepCraftAlive movement, Pella made financial and window donations to aid the SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference for aspiring tradespeople.
