Medford, WI - January 3, 2012 - Hurd Windows and Doors announced it is partnering with Arizona-based Vista Pointe Architectural Systems, a manufacturer of folding and sliding patio door systems.

Vista Pointe is a provider of high-end, wide-opening patio door and window systems.

"We are very excited to have the opportunity to partner with Vista Pointe to make Hurd an even greater resource for people seeking door systems that fit all their individual needs."
