Bonelli Enterprises, a luxury subsidiary of Pella Corporation, selected Jacksonville, Florida as the site for its new manufacturing facility. Bonelli will occupy an existing 72,102 square feet space in northwest Jacksonville where it will house the production of luxury aluminium windows and doors.
In December 2018, Pella announced that it was expanding the operations for Bonelli from the West Coast to Jacksonville, Fla. While in the past the brand’s focus has remained on the custom market in and around San Francisco, with this expansion that includes a more than 72,000 square-foot manufacturing facility, the company aims to extend Bonelli’s reach to the southeast. Officials for Pella officials state there are currently no plans for the new Jacksonville-based facility to produce any of its Pella brand products.
Bonelli estimates the creation of 15-30 new jobs by the time operations begin in spring 2019 and a total of 150 new jobs by 2023. It proposes a capital investment of USD 7 million in manufacturing, equipment, furniture and real estate purchase and improvements.
