Ribbon Cutting, Demonstrations Shown During Chamber Coffee


WAYNE – For the second Friday in a row a ribbon cutting event took place during Chamber Coffee.

Community members joined D.V. Fyre-Tec during the weekly event put on by the Wayne Area Economic Development office. Located in the Industrial Park, the manufacturer of fire-rated windows is found just off Highway 35.

Jason Gehling is the new Vice President of Fyre Tec in Wayne and said on the east and west coast their product is highly utilized.

“Everything we use and do is custom made from the steel is cut to the fire rated glass that we bring in,” Gehling said. “So, you can see windows in apartment buildings, skyscrapers and hospitals all across the United States and we’ve even done some international stuff.”

D.V. are the initials of the previous owners’ last names.

With the plant being closed on Friday, the office is open Monday – Friday from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. with the plant running 10-hour shifts.

Inside the 46,000-square foot plant offers the production facility, offices, other shops, paint booth and power coating line as everything is done on site.

Along with being a local company, D.V. Fyre Tec serves across the country.

“We ship windows across the United States daily,” Gehling added. “I think even all over Egypt if you had to get going, but primarily California, Florida, New York, Chicago, etc. are our main markets.”

A demonstration of a how a Fyre-Tec  window works was also provided along with other displays showed off.

There’ll be no Chamber Coffee on Friday, July 5 as the next scheduled Friday morning event will be hosted by the Wayne Chicken Show Committee and Huskerland Communications on July 12 in downtown Wayne.
