A Medford based window and door company will likely be acquired by a larger California based company.
Hurd Window and Door has manufacturing facilites in Medford and Merrill.
The company announced in a statement that they will be acquired by Sierra Pacific Industries. It hasn't been confirmed if the move will bring more jobs to the area, but it's expected to have a positive impact on the local economy.
"If we have the opportunity to bring businesses in from other states and other areas, that is only going to help our other businesses. What it does is it provides sustainable income for our employees already here." says Susan Ryman of Lincoln County Economic Development.
Hurd currenly employs about 400 people.
The sale is expected to close later this summer.
