The annual event, organized by the American Trucking Associations and observed from Sept. 10 - 16 this year, aims to honor the more than 3.5 million truck drivers nationwide who play a vital role in keeping the country moving forward. PGT Innovations takes great pride in its 135 Class A CDL truck drivers, who transport products from their family of brands to businesses and construction sites across the country. In 2023, to date, PGT Innovations drivers have made more than 50,000 deliveries, covering 5.1 million miles.
PGT Innovations provided special treats for its drivers throughout the week, including certificates of appreciation, special breakfasts, snack bags, gift cards, commemorative t-shirts, goody bags, raffles, and more.
“In addition to their exceptional service, our drivers are also active members of their community,” said Jeff Jackson, President and CEO of PGT Innovations. “For decades they have tirelessly volunteered to deliver essential supplies to areas devastated by hurricanes, including Hurricane Ian in 2022 and Hurricane Idalia this year. Furthermore, every PGT Innovations driver has completed the comprehensive Highway Heroes training, enabling them to identify and report instances of human trafficking.”
Celebrations took place at the main manufacturing facilities for CGI®, PGT® Custom Windows and Doors, Western Window Systems, Anlin Windows & Doors, Eco Window Systems, and NewSouth Window Solutions, located in Hialeah, Fla.; Venice, Fla.; Phoenix, Ariz.; Clovis, Calif.; Medley, Fla.; and Tampa, Fla., respectively.
“We appreciate the hard work and dedication of our drivers, and the culture of care they foster within the company,” said Jackson. “The collaboration between PGT Innovations and our truck drivers is a testament to their commitment to excellence and driving the company forward.”
