Thompson Creek Windows Breaks Ground

Upper Marlboro, MD – The  Groundbreaking ceremonies have been scheduled for Monday, April 20 at 3:15 pm for the initiation of construction of a new 117,000 square foot building housing the manufacturing and warehouse operations of Thompson Creek Window Company at 8300 Pennsylvania Avenue in the Upper Marlboro section of Prince George's County, Maryland. The $20 million project is being undertaken by Chesapeake Real Estate Group, a locally-based commercial real estate and development company, on the site of the existing Murry's Steaks facility adjacent to Exit 4 of the Capital Beltway.

Thompson Creek Window Company operates as a Mid-Atlantic home improvement and replacement products company. For the past thirty years, the firm has been customizing and manufacturing replacement windows, doors, gutters and siding in the residential and commercial marketplaces. In 1980, Thompson Creek began manufacturing energy efficient windows on West Street in Annapolis. They quickly outgrew that facility and in moved to a location on Thompson Creek Road in Stevensville, MD. In 2007, the company moved into a 70,000 square foot facility in Landover with a new corporate headquarters in nearby Lanham.

"When you successfully retain a corporate headquarters and manufacturing company with 400 jobs in Prince George's County, it's a great day to be County Executive," said Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker. "Thompson Creek's commitment to expand its operations and remain in Prince George's County adds to Prince George's success as a significant employment center. This is great news for Prince George's County.”

Prince George's County has created an Economic Development Incentive Fund ("EDI Fund") to support job retention and attraction, economic development and redevelopment in Prince George's County, and has offered the Company an incentive package consisting primarily of conditional loans and new jobs tax credits. To assist with the construction of the new facility, the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development (DBED) has approved a $750,000 conditional loan based on project costs and job creation.
