Who Is Pella Corporation?

In the small Dutch Community of Pella, Iowa in 1925, Pete and Lucille Kuyper invested in a new invention – a window screen that rolled up and down like a shade. The couple went on to found a company based on the principles of traditional American values, integrity and the desire to enrich the homes and lives of our customers.

Today, Pella Corporation is still privately owned and continues to be a leader in technology and product innovation.  In fact, they've been awarded more than 150 product and design patents.  And the team at Pella is as committed as ever to continuing the company's proud heritage of building innovative windows and doors.
