PGT Innovations a national leader in the premium window and door category, recently revealed its 24,500-square-foot iLab, an extension of the business that serves as a product incubator and micro-factory, during a ribbon-cutting ceremony last Thursday. The new iLab operations include creating prototypes, developing initial product builds, and, if needed, assisting in setting up mass-production plans for products. During the ribbon-cutting ceremony, attendees toured iLab, viewed its products and heard from PGT Innovations executives and Venice Mayor John Holic. The crowd also saw an impact-resistant glass demonstration, a part of PGT Innovations’ stringent testing protocols. 

“The iLab supports PGT Innovations’ mission to manufacture highly engineered and technically advanced products that can withstand some of the toughest weather conditions and revolutionize the way people live by unifying indoor and outdoor living spaces," said Jeff Jackson, President and CEO of PGT Innovations. "With this state-of-the-art facility, we’ve brought together an exceptional team of inventors, tinkerers, engineers, and dreamers who also have in-depth industry knowledge.”

Located at 3440 Technology Drive in North Venice.
