Bonelli Doors + Windows has relocated entirely from high-cost San Francisco to affordable Mesa, Arizona. The door and window designer and manufacturer created 35 new jobs and plans to hire more at its new facility, where it will design, manufacture and ship finished product.
“Mesa is a great fit for Bonelli. With its low cost of living, educated workforce, freeway connections to major markets, and international airport, it is an ideal location for our headquarters and operations to be in one building,” said Cameron Wyatt, president of Bonelli.
To support expansion and with 17 new product launches planned in the next year, Bonelli partnered with ASU Preparatory Academy Polytechnic and is hiring local students as interns and employees.
