Danish immigrant Hans Andersen founded the business (then called Andersen Corporation) in Hudson, Wisconsin, in 1903. In the span of 115 years, his company has grown into the largest window and door manufacturer in North America. Now headquartered in Bayport, Minnesota, it is among the most recognized and most used brand in the window and patio door industry.
Andersen has a legacy of creating innovative products that still lives on today.
