An Overview of the Pella Window Company

The Pella company was founded in Pella, Iowa by the Kuyper family who invented a roll-up window screen. The shade-type screen, the Rolscreen, has gone through many innovative improvements and is still manufactured today. More profitably, the windows the company began to produce became popular throughout the Midwest and eventually the entire country.

Pella remains privately owned by the Kuyper Family. Currently, the company employs 8,000 team members and has 17 production facilities with products featured in more than 200 window and door showrooms. They are also carried by several national “big box” stores. Annual sales for Pella window and door products exceed $1Billion.

Pella has adopted the Kaizen Methodology of continuous improvement, founded on the Japanese philosophy of change for the better. The methodology has been applied to a wide range of industries including manufacturing, healthcare, banking and government.

Pella Window Prices & Costs

Like most successful businesses, Pella has created lines of windows across the price spectrum in order to appeal to a wider range of consumers. Pella Architect Series and Pella Reserve Series windows are the top of the line. Both wood window series are among the most expensive in the industry and are produced in Traditional and Contemporary lines. They offer you rich beauty and a wonderful variety of options and accessories.

If you want Pella wood windows at a more affordable price, the Pella 250 Series vinyl and Pella Impervia fiberglass are great alternatives. It is comprised of the most popular sizes, features and options with only a slight drop-off in quality. The energy efficiency is very good too.

The Encompass by Pella Series windows are Pella’s most energy-efficient vinyl windows available. With a lifetime limited warranty, you can count on outstanding durability. For an affordable vinyl window, consider the Encompass by Pella windows that are also known as ThermaStar by Pella windows.

Most of the Pella windows series offer Energy Star rated glass packages, some designed to meet the characteristics of specific climates – very cold, those with a majority of sunny days and more.
