Door product maker expands in Montgomery

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The Montgomery Chamber of Commerce announced good news for the capital city Tuesday morning.

St. Louis, Missouri based Hager Companies says it will consolidate its Alabama operations and relocate several of its product lines to Montgomery.

Hager is a maker of residential and commercial door hardware products. Their products include a variety of door hinges, weatherstrippings, locks and more.

The consolidation will mean the closure of the company's Oxford area facility, but company officials say many of the Oxford employees are being offered jobs at the expanding Montgomery facility.

It will also help return more than 240 employees to a 5-day work week and literally open the door to new jobs.

Hager employees more than 500 people around the United States.

WSFA 12 News will have reaction from city and company officials on the news at 5 and 6.
