Industrial door manufacuterer Albany, a division of ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems, will be featured in a future episode of the television show "How It’s Made." A television crew will film the production of Albany's M&I high-performance door on Nov. 30 at the company’s factory in Lawrenceville, Ga.
"How It’s Made" reveals the manufacturing process behind common goods. The viewer is able to see in one episode how everyday items transform from raw materials to finished products, and get a behind-the-scenes look at high-tech factories around the world. Previous shows have featured firefighter helmets, hockey pucks and paint-chip cards.
The Albany M&I door was selected from approximately 17,500 submissions from around the world. Less than 1 percent of the products submitted are accepted to appear on the show. "We are thrilled to have been selected from so many applicants to be featured on this very popular television show,” said Craig Jones, Albany’s vice president and general manager. “Many of our customers and end-users are fans of the show and we are proud to be able to showcase our unique product in this format.”
"How It’s Made" is produced in Quebec, Canada, and broadcast in more than 180 countries worldwide. In the United States it airs on The Science Channel and The Discovery Channel.
