They make fine windows, and doors too if I’m not mistaken,

Welcome to NC.

The bOregonian should be thrilled they ran another evil private company out of the state.

Merry Christmas

Hmmm. This might be the start of something here,,,,

I opened up a link to my northwest hometown newspaper and learned that a major sawmill voted by 80% to decertify. Two paper mills in that town, that had closed, re-opened as non union shops.

This area had been the center of the wood worker union movement (e.g. Wobblies, IWA) for over a 100 years.

I think it’s a good thing that the states are self-selecting free vs socialist.

I am surprised as it was very recently that this company was in dire financial straights, and was not expected to survive.

from Oregon -- with an average annual payroll

I misread that as average annual rainfall

I love Jeld-Wen products. I have quite a few of their windows and doors. Fine quality for a stock product, and zero flaws or installation hassles, even for a lady like me who doesn’t have a lot of strength or skill.

Isn’t North Carolina’s corporate tax higher than Oregon or Georgia ? Jeld-Wen Chief Administrative Officer Ron Saxton told the Business Journal in September that expanding the company’s presence in the south will allow it to better serve two of its largest customers, Atlanta-based Home Depot and North Carolina-based Lowe’s.

Reasonably accurate bio of company founder.

Richard Wendt, Jeld-Wen cofounder and philanthropist, dies in Portland

Darn it, I was hoping we were going to get them in SC. Congrats to NC, well done.

Jeld-Wen's shift raises questions concerning Oregon's retention efforts.

Yeah, that's the answer nowadays. Treat business like sh*t till they leave. Then trot out the "retention" efforts. Give 'em some tax breaks that all the other businesses who stay will have to pay.

The French economist, Frederic Bastiat, used to talk about the "seen" and the "unseen". Everyone sees this company setting up operations in Caroline, no one, though, sees all the businesses that just quietly shut down.

I’m not surprised that they had no comment. They wisely trusted neither the state government, nor the media.

Were I them, if asked for a comment, I would have sent the link for the video of Eduard Khil’s song “Trololo”.
