PGT Innovations and John Cannon Homes Ink Exclusive Partnership Agreement

August 23, 2019

NORTH VENICE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PGT Innovations (NYSE: PGTI), a national leader in the premium window and door category, has penned an exclusive partnership deal with southwest Florida’s premier luxury builder John Cannon Homes.

PGT Innovations will provide windows and doors from the manufacturers’ trusted family of brands in his two new model homes opening in late summer 2020 at The Islands on the Manatee River and Skye Ranch.

Throughout his home designs, John Cannon is known for using innovative products that exceed code standards. Impact-resistant windows and doors from WinDoor®, one of PGT Innovations’ luxury brands, will be featured in both The Tindarra and The Kylie models.

The brand was selected, in part, due to its reputation for having some of the highest-performing products in the industry that exceed code requirements, as well as its product styles that perfectly complement the distinctive designs of John Cannon Homes. Additionally, high-style, contemporary products from the exclusive PGT Innovations’ iLab may also make an appearance in some of Cannon’s highly customized designs.

With regard to windows and doors, protection and convenience were primary factors considered by the homebuilder.

“Having lived and built homes in Sarasota, Florida for over 31 years, I understand the importance of using the right window and door products that exceed our state’s requirements and also provide an aesthetically appealing look to the home,” said John Cannon, president and CEO. “PGT Innovations’ leadership position in their industry, reputation for producing high-performance products through their various brands, and commitment to protecting homeowners is the reason they are my partner of choice for windows and doors.”

To date, John Cannon Homes has constructed 84 models and over 1,400 private residences that can be found in many of the area’s gated, golf and waterfront communities – from Tampa Bay to Port Charlotte. In addition to being recognized as the Readers’ Choice Best Builder for 27 consecutive years in Sarasota, Manatee and Venice, John Cannon Homes has also garnered more than 350 industry honors, across four counties.

“John Cannon has been an exceptional partner to us for several years, and we appreciate his continued endorsement of our products,” said Jeff Jackson, PGT Innovations president and CEO. “We are excited about this expanded partnership and for the opportunity to provide impact protection to even more Florida residents. While our products are known for keeping homes secure during storms, they also provide everyday protection from noise pollution and effects of our climate, as well as encourage people to connect more with their surroundings. This agreement will allow us to further help homeowners revolutionize the way they live by unifying their indoor and outdoor spaces.”
