A Little History About Milgard Windows

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 Marysville, Washington; Portland, Oregon; Las Vegas, Nevada; Sacramento, Hollister, Simi Valley, Temecula and Dixon, California; Denver, Colorado; Salt Lake City, Utah; Phoenix, Arizona; Chicago, Illinois, and Fredericksburg, Virginia.

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. Milgard makes their own insulated glass units, produce thier own vinyl components and make their 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. They extrude their own frame material, and fabricate all vinyl windows and doors to order, giving them the tightest control over quality. Milgard's fiberglass windows and doors receive the same level of attention. Almost all thier frame materials are manufactured internally to provide the highest level of consistently high quality.

Milgard also goes so far to temper their 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.
