Illinois design company to open Indiana location

RWW built the Miles Square Health Center in Chicago.

PORTER COUNTY, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) — Reflection Window + Wall founders have announced plans to establish a new subsidiary in Indiana to support its growing operations in the Midwest. The move will create a new company, Ekos Window + Wall, with plans to create more than 100 jobs over the next five years.

EWW is working to find a location, with plans to invest more than $9.3 million in the building and equipping the 120,000 square-foot facility in Porter County. The building is expected to hold office space and operations for the company’s glass curtain wall product.

“It was clear to us right away that Indiana has been working very hard for years to create the environment we witnessed, and that’s where manufacturers want to be,” said RWW President and Founder Rodrigo d’Escoto. “We think Indiana is going to be the factory floor of the U.S. The entire experience was world class, just like our products, and we’re thrilled that our next generation of technology will be made in Indiana.

The company expects construction, which will be done in two phases, to begin in early 2021, with completion tentatively set for Q4 2021.
