The first steps.
The success Simonton enjoys today can be traced back to the simple philosophy, core beliefs and old-fashioned values that first took root in 1946 in a small town called Pennsboro, West Virginia. Back then, the Simonton family recognized a growing need for aluminum products and manufactured quality aluminum awnings and marquees. The family soon realized that a high quality window would be in high demand, so they branched out into the aluminum window and door market. One of the first additions to their product line was an innovative triple-track storm window. It was met with such success that they soon added two more windows, the Thermo Boss and the Energy Capp.
A new direction.
By the early 1980s, the Simonton family recognized that vinyl was superior to aluminum for window and doors, so, once again, the company headed in a new direction. Top quality vinyl windows and doors, along with unbeatable delivery times and great customer service was apparently something America was ready for. Sales skyrocketed, and several huge expansion projects thrust the company into a leadership position.
A new age of old-fashioned values.
Simonton Windows® entered the new millennium with its dedication to quality products and unbeatable customer service intact. Legendary Simonton quality continues to be recognized throughout the industry and is evident in the numerous industry awards Simonton has received.
