The Window and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) elected Steve Donner of Weiland Sliding Doors & Windows in Oceanside, Calif., as the association's 2014-2015 chair.
He replaces outgoing Chair Mike Salsieder, of Kolbe & Kolbe Millwork in Wausau, Wisc.
"WDMA has been at the forefront of tackling many key issues facing the window, door and skylight industry over the past several years,” said Donner. “However, we continue to face over-regulation and red tape at the federal and state level, and WDMA will continue to do its part to advocate for smart legislation, balanced standards and sensible regulation. I also look forward to strengthening our robust certification, technical, networking and education programs that benefit our members," said Donner. "WDMA has had great success over the past year in promoting, protecting and advancing the industry, and I look forward to continuing these gains on behalf of our members and the entire industry."
Donner serves as general manager of Weiland Sliding Doors and Windows, which is owned by Andersen Corporation. The company has been around for more than 25 years, and it manufactures sliding doors, folding doors, pivot doors, swinging doors and windows.
