PGT Receives DOE Save Energy Now Recognition

NORTH VENICE, Fla., July 28, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PGT Industries (Nasdaq:PGTI), one of the nation's leading providers of custom windows and doors, and the nation's leading supplier of residential impact-resistant windows and doors, has received the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Saver award for achieving more than 7.5% total energy savings.

"PGT is committed to driving down the energy consumption in our manufacturing facilities," said Rod Hershberger, PGT President and CEO. "Today's economy demands energy efficiency and lower costs to stay competitive. We want to use less energy and we want to help consumers cut their energy consumption. PGT recently developed the first impact-resistant windows having a U-factor of less than 0.22, thus satisfying the requirements of the Department of Energy R-5 program."

PGT completed a Save Energy Now energy assessment with the DOE Industrial Technologies Program (ITP) in 2009. Save Energy Now is a national initiative to reduce industrial energy intensity 25% or more in 10 years. Companies nationwide can partner with DOE, participate in no-cost energy assessments, and use ITP's resources to reduce energy use and improve efficiency, while increasing profits.

In 2009, ITP awarded 151 plants for making significant progress in implementing the energy savings opportunities identified through a Save Energy Now energy assessment. In total, the award recipients achieved more than $32 million in cost savings and 4 trillion Btu in total energy savings.
