SALTSBURG, Penn. — Winchester Industries is celebrating 30 years of manufacturing and selling triple glass insulating windows and doors, leveraging a truly exclusive dealer sales program.
The company was launched in October 1983 to fill a need in the market for triple-pane replacement windows to save energy—something that would eventually become a global priority. Thirty years later, with more than 2 million windows installed nationwide, homeowners continue to trust Winchester and its exclusive Bristol and Oxford dealers by replacing inefficient windows with the brand’s superior alternatives.
“We are very pleased to celebrate 30 years of doing business and serving our clients’ diverse needs,” said Michael F. Sugrue, president of Winchester Industries. “Throughout the years, we have always said that homeowners should only have to replace their windows once—something that can only be achieved with the very best in quality. Our team takes great pride in the craftsmanship of our windows and doors.”
Privately owned and highly respected in the industry, Winchester makes Bristol and Oxford windows and doors in its 141,000 square-foot manufacturing facility in Saltsburg, Penn. Robert Weis and George Yuhasz founded the company, combining their decades of industry experience to debut the first triple glass Bristol replacement double-hung window. This set the stage for Winchester to become the leader in window innovation, placing it in the perfect position to meet an ever-growing demand for energy efficient windows and doors.
As the economy continues to improve, Winchester plans to aggressively expand its nationwide dealer base to offer more homeowners the opportunity to purchase high-quality custom, triple-pane products from a well-established manufacturer.
Never a company to rest on its laurels, Winchester has evolved from providing clear triple glass to triple glass loaded with superior energy efficient technologies. This includes a proprietary gas mixture, specialized spacer system and superior reflective coating materials in a one-inch insulating glass unit.
In addition, the company pioneered its Bristol Q-IV Locking System to surpass security features already on the market. Four hardened, steel-locking points create both a visual difference and a built-in security feature that provides a guarantee against home break-ins.
Patented features, coupled with Winchester’s superior glazing and proprietary reinforced mainframe and sash frame, clearly differentiate Bristol windows in the marketplace. In addition to a full line of custom-made window styles, the company also manufactures steel entry and vinyl sliding patio doors.
Winchester maintains a strong dealer network that affords truly exclusive products and territories, making them the only sales organization within any market to sell Bristol or Oxford products. This includes knowledgeable sales representatives and well-trained installers to meet customers’ needs, and all products are custom made for each individual opening. Weis and Yuhasz continue to oversee various aspects of the business today, with Sugrue running the day-to-day operations.
“The majority of our team has at least 25 years with the company,” said Sugrue. “Due to great ownership foresight and employee dedication, Winchester enjoys financial and employee stability that is seldom seen in corporate America. That’s another point of pride for our company.”
