Roto Wins DWM Readers' Choice Award
Readers of Door and Window Market magazine [DWM], a business-to-business publication that’s devoted exclusively to the coverage of the door and window industries, recently weighed in and selected Roto North America’s X-DRIVE Evolve OP08 Operators as a top choice among door and window hardware.

Community Engagement
Chris Dimou is co-chair of a new manufacturing effort in Connecticut. The South-Central Manufacturing Industry Partnership, an industry-led regional sector partnership focused on growing and supporting the manufacturing industry in the South-Central region of Connecticut, officially launched at the end of March. The partnership was created in response to the Connecticut Governor’s Workforce Council’s prioritization of regional sector partnerships as a way to harness the economic power of critical jobs sectors, as well as to better coordinate public support for those sectors.

New Corporate Design at Roto
Roto has launched a global implementation of their new corporate design across all Roto companies and divisions.

The new modern appearance and visual language support the identity of Roto and the company’s focus on our customers. A new secondary logo called “german made” has also been implemented. This logo will identify continuity, consistency, reliability, experience, foresight, knowledge, and capability.

The updated Roto corporate design will have no change in the manufacturing of products. Roto North America will continue to produce North American window and door hardware in our Chester, CT and Mississauga, Ontario plants. There will be no action needed by customers for day to day communication with Roto as the corporate design changes will only further emphasize Roto’s proud heritage.

Featured Product
The Roto Patio Inowa combines convenient operation, high impermeability, and attractive design for sliding doors and windows made of timber, PVC, and aluminum. In addition, the smart hardware coupled with concealed technology allows the use of narrow, straight-line profiles for a modern, aesthetically pleasing design.
