Employees at Minnesota-based Andersen Corp. will split more than $8 million in bonuses as part of a profit-sharing program.

The company, which is headquartered in Bayport, says eligible employees will get $1,080 each.

About 8,000 of the company's 10,000 workers will get the bonus, the Pioneer Press reports.

Andersen has nearly 4,000 employees in Minnesota, a media relations spokesperson told BringMeTheNews.

Andersen was founded in 1903 in Hudson, Wisconsin. The company's profit-sharing program dates back 100 years, but was put on hiatus for five years during the recent recession. Last year, the company announced it was bringing back the program.

"After exceeding our goals for the year it is truly a year to celebrate,” Jay Lund, Chairman, President and CEO at Andersen said in a statement.

Hormel and Marvin Windows have also been known to give out bonuses to employees based on profit-sharing programs.
