State Representative Joanne Stehr visits MI Windows’ Hegins location

HEGINS, Pa. – Pennsylvania State Representative Joanne Stehr took a tour of MI Windows and Doors’ manufacturing facility in Hegins today. A Hegins resident, Stehr was eager to make her first official visit to the Hegins facility since her election in 2022.

Employing more than 500 team members, Hegins is one of MI Windows’ two manufacturing facilities in Pennsylvania. Stehr, who represents the 107th district, which encompasses parts of Schuylkill and Northumberland counties in east-central Pa., spent approximately 90 minutes touring the plant floor.

“I was impressed by the dedication of the employees,” Stehr said. “They really know their job.”

Brett Erdman, the Director of Operations at the Hegins plant, was Stehr’s tour guide. He showed her the plant’s state-of-the-art equipment and introduced her to team members as they did their jobs.

“She wanted to know what Hegins is all about,” Erdman said. “She had a lot of questions about our products and the difference between what we do compared to the other locations.”

Upon arriving at the Hegins plant, Stehr quickly noticed that MI Windows is a safety-first business. Hegins is one of five facilities at MITER Brands—MI Windows’ parent company—that has the U.S. Department of Labor’s Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Star.

“Everything is safety-motivated here,” she said. We have safety vests and safety glasses. There are a lot of safety protocols.”

Once the tour was complete, Stehr stated her desire to make a return visit in the near future.

“To have this right in our backyard is a real plus,” she said. “I want to come back and do a follow-up.”
