   Bronx, N.Y. - Advantage Lites & Louvers (A-LL), a Zero International company, has moved its headquarters and manufacturing plant to new quarters in Wallace, North Carolina. The 25,000 sq. ft. facility in Wallace triples the size of the space occupied previously by the company in Burgaw, North Carolina, where it shared quarters with a previous owner, LL Building Products, Inc. Prompted by Zero's plans to expand A-LL production of door louvers and vision lites, the relocation provides room for major equipment upgrades, including a state-of-the-art powder-coating system. Scheduled to come online during the second quarter, that system allows maximum flexibility for customizing colors and scheduling production to meet customer needs. The added factory space also facilitates ongoing quality-control improvements to ensure product output to Zero's recognized high quality standards. The siting of the new plant in Wallace, in close proximity to Burgaw, allows a seamless transition with no disruption to staffing. It also reflects Zero's long-term commitment to maintaining operations within North Carolina

Based in Bronx, New York, Zero is a leading manufacturer of door and window sealing hardware recognized for the quality of its product line. That line includes sound-control gasketing, INTUMETTM positive-pressure fire and smoke assemblies, and a full array of other specialized sealing systems for doors and windows; high-performance continuous hinges; and TRACTION TREADTM systems for door saddles and stair nosings. Acquired by Zero in December, 2004, the product line of Advantage Lites & Louvers is widely known to the door hardware industry dating from its origins as part of the former Leslie Locke Building Products company.

Advantage Lites & Louvers is now located at: 605 Old Wilmington Road, Wallace, NC 28466.
