JELD-WEN Expands in Cheyenne

Cheyenne, WY – An expanding business will bring about 100 new jobs to the Cheyenne area over the next two years. Door and window manufacturer JELD-WEN is purchasing 14 acres of land for a new, larger building. Construction is expected to start in May and wrap up in December. JELD-WEN General Manager Mark King says his company had considered leaving Wyoming for a site closer to its large markets in Colorado. But King says that would have cost him the 200 skilled workers he already employs.
