The Windsor Story

Windsor Windows & Doors began in 1946, as Windsor Wood Working, Inc., a small locally owned company in Windsor Heights, Iowa with 12-15 employees. Since that time, Windsor’s strong Midwest work ethic and pride in craftsmanship have guided us in building a business totally centered on the things that matter most to our customers.

  • Quality – Windsor provides a complete array of high-quality, energy-efficient products
  • Product Selection – Windsor manufactures custom-built products in three distinctive materials: wood with aluminum clad or primed exterior, cellular PVC and vinyl
  • Service – We pledge the best possible support services in the industry
  • Value – Top-quality products offered at a fair price means real value for you

In 1987, Windsor became part of Woodgrain Millwork – the largest U.S. manufacturer of prefinished mouldings and interior pine doors. This alliance and other successes have given Windsor a national presence in today’s window and door marketplace and allowed us to expand our operations to better serve you.

Windsor continues to expand its production facilities. In 1992, Windsor purchased a manufacturing facility in Monroe, North Carolina and three years later built a 150,000 square foot expansion onto its existing West Des Moines, Iowa facility. In 2006, Windsor constructed a 100,000 square foot vinyl production facility next to its existing Iowa location.

Production facilities were not the only things that were expanding. Windsor continued to grow its product offering. In 1995, Windsor began producing vinyl products and in 1996, Windsor began using 100% cellular PVC in their Legend products. In 2006, Windsor added an additional vinyl line called Next Dimension Pro and in 2007 Windsor introduced a new hybrid unit called Legend HBR.

Over the past 60+ years, Windsor has continued to expand and has grown to over 700 employees. Windsor operates its corporate headquarters in West Des Moines, Iowa where it has two large manufacturing facilities totaling 340,000 square feet. Windsor also has a second manufacturing facility in Monroe, North Carolina with 200,000 square feet of production space.
