The Cormier family, owners of Norwood, have over thirty years experience in the local lumber business. It’s their own sawmill that supplies West-Wood Industries with the pine for Norwood’s windows and doors. The benefit of these family connections to you? Norwood gets exactly the right quality and size of lumber we need to make the best product possible.
PRESERVING OUR PLANET IS NOT ONLY OUR RESPONSIBILITY, IT’S OUR PRIORITY.
In the window and door industry, much of what we do relies heavily upon the consumption of natural resources. As such, Norwood places a strong emphasis on reducing our environmental impact through the development and implementation of green manufacturing and disposal processes.
- Scrap wood either unused or unsuitable for use in our premium windows and doors is put to good use in heating 40% of our manufacturing facility
- All products are built with sustainably-harvested lumber
- Any excess or broken glass is collected and returned to our supplier for immediate recycling
- Sawdust, an often troublesome byproduct of our business, is collected in silos, compressed and re-purposed to heat our dry lumber kilns
- All cardboard and paper waste associated with our operations is recycled on a weekly basis.
SUPERIOR PROCESS = SUPERIOR PRODUCTS
All of our premium doors and windows are manufactured to exacting standards of energy efficiency to ensure your home preserves heat in the winter and cold in the summer…like it’s supposed to.
