Brothers Herb and Ervin Kolbe started repairing and building windows and door frames in Marathon, Wisconsin, in 1946. More than 70 years later, their business expanded into a nationally recognized enterprise known across the luxury window and door industry for selling its innovative and expansive products through hundreds of distributors across North America and beyond.
Customers across the continent and elsewhere trust Kolbe for high-quality, professional-grade windows. They can choose from a variety of customizable styles across its four product lines: the sleek VistaLuxe Collection, the versatile Ultra Series, the timeless Heritage Series, and the durable and enduring Forgent Series.
Still family-owned and operated, Kolbe has always kept a keen eye on quality. In fact, Herb Kolbe was known for saying, “We don’t strive to be the biggest, but we do strive to be the best.” The company continues to live up to that legacy, with more than 200 employees honing their expert craftsmanship skills for Kolbe for over 25 years.
Another marker of Kolbe’s quality comes with its commitment to design excellence in one-of-a-kind, custom-made products — that’s why none of its windows or doors begin the build process until a customer places an order.
