Environmental Business Practices

Building windows. And a better world.

It's not just the windows and doors we build but the way we build them that respects and protects our environment. Since our company began in 1925, we've been proud environmental stewards. Not only because it's good for business, but because it's the right thing to do. In the words of our founder:

We recognize our responsibilities as stewards of our natural resources and the environment, and will avoid wasteful or harmful disregard of the environmental effects of our operations.

Pete Kuyper, 1950 Founder, Pella Corporation
