Company Profile
We have one unwavering goal, and that's to be the best window and door manufacturer. We will settle for nothing less. To achieve that goal, we are committed to three guiding principles: The individual must be respected. The customer must be given the best possible service. Excellence and superior performance must be pursued. Employees Are the Key to Our Success Milgard's history of growth and success as a window and door manufacturer is due to the dedication of our employees. To be the best, we hire the best. More than 3,000 Milgard employees work hard every day to give our customers high-quality products and superior service. They're a big part of the answer to the question: Why Milgard? They see their jobs as we do—as careers. Fifty Years of Innovation in Window and Door Manufacturing Milgard Glass Company, 1958 In 1958, Maurice Milgard, Jr. and his son Gary started Milgard Glass Company in a small building in Tacoma, Washington. Gary's brother, Jim, joined the company in 1961. Within a short time, the Milgards diversified into aluminum windows. In 1962, Gary Milgard left the glass company to start an aluminum window fabricating company called Milgard Manufacturing. The company's objective was to provide a reliable source of quality aluminum windows styled and crafted to meet the unique architectural requirements of the western United States. In 1968, Milgard Manufacturing started producing sliding glass doors. Two years later, aluminum frames were redesigned to fit both single-pane and insulating glass. Milgard developed a type of aluminum frame that was suitable for cold weather areas where only wood frames had been effective. The year 1989 marked the introduction of the first Milgard® windows with vinyl frames. WoodClad™ windows and doors, a dramatic new line of fiberglass windows and doors, was introduced in 1990. Growth continues to be the norm at Milgard. In addition to the Tacoma operation, the company now has manufacturing, sales and service locations in Portland, Oregon; Sacramento, Hollister, Simi Valley, Temecula and Dixon, California; Denver, Colorado; Salt Lake City, Utah; Phoenix, Arizona, and Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas. The Vertically Integrated Windows Manufacturer While many window companies are simply distributors of someone else's products, Milgard is a vertically integrated window and patio door manufacturer. We make our own insulated glass units. We produce our own vinyl components. We make our own fiberglass frames. The Milgard vinyl plant, located in Tacoma, began extruding quality frame material in 1988. To ensure top quality from start to finish, Milgard begins by precisely controlling our vinyl compound formulation to withstand harsh climate conditions. We extrude our own frame material, and fabricate all vinyl windows and doors to order, giving us the tightest control over quality. Our fiberglass windows and doors receive the same level of attention. Almost all our frame materials are manufactured internally to provide the highest level of consistently high quality. Milgard, 1992 Milgard also goes so far to temper our own glass. In 1980, Milgard Tempering, Inc. was started in Tacoma to respond to a demand for high-quality tempered glass in the Northwest. In 1992, a second Milgard Tempering plant was opened in Dixon, California. Modern equipment and skilled employees enabled Milgard Tempering to become one of the most respected tempered glass suppliers in the country. Through our vertical integration, Milgard is able to control quality at every step of the way. The result is higher quality products, all of which we confidently back with one of the industry's best guarantees, Milgard's Full Lifetime Warranty. A Masco Company Milgard and Masco, 2001 In 2001, Milgard was purchased by Masco Corporation, one of the world's largest manufacturers of brand-name consumer products for the home and family. Masco owns many admired companies within the building community, such as Delta Faucet Company, Merillat Cabinetry, Hot Spring Hot Tubs, KraftMaid Cabinetry plus these brands. Masco is a leading provider of services that include the sale and installation of insulation and other building products. Through Masco, Milgard is receiving the support it needs to bring its high-quality windows and doors to more homes throughout the country.
