Founded in 1925 when Pete and Lucille Kuyper invested in a window screen that rolled up and down like a shade, Pella has spent almost a century developing into one of the largest and most trusted window manufacturers in the United States. The company is named after the Iowa town in which it resides and prides itself on offering consumers more materials, colors, and options than any other window and door brand.
Pella has a history of creating cutting-edge, high-quality window products and continues to be an industry leader when it comes to technology and product innovation. In fact, the company has been awarded more than 150 product and design patents, including Slimshade® blinds — the world’s first window with blinds between the glass.
In addition to creating innovative products, Pella also prides itself on offering safe, durable, and practical windows and doors at an affordable price. In fact, the company puts their products through rigorous quality standards by making sure they’ll stand up over time via rigorous in-house product testing. Each window and door undergoes thermal testing for glass efficacy; wood preservative testing for durability; cycle testing for the functionality of locks, screens and shades; and other tests that maximize energy efficiency, safety, and performance.
