JELD-WEN: Becoming a Leader in the Door and Window Industry.

Jeld-Wen is one of the leading manufacturers of glass and doors. The company was established in 1960 by Richard Wendt and four other people. They managed to purchase a small mill and decided to build their business from there. The company started small in Klamath Falls, Oregon, but they soon rose to popularity and their revenues reached an all-time high. During the years of their success led by Richard Wendt, Jeld-Wen managed to purchase and build several resorts under the company’s name. However, when Richard Wendt passed away in 2010, these resorts that are mostly located in the Western United States were sold to different firms, and almost 58% of the total assets that the company has was sold to Onex for $864 million.

The etymology of the company’s name is believed to be a combination of the initials of the immediate family of Richard Wendt (JELD) and the shortened version of their last name (WEN). The name is the idea of Jeanette Coughlin, and the name was ultimately chosen by Richard Wendt because it sounded great. The company began to infiltrate the European market in 1993, and they managed to generate 12 European subsidiaries in the next few years. Their European branch was divided into four different groups, and each group caters to a different area in Europe. The groups are Central Europe, North Europe, France and the United Kingdom. Jeld-Wen managed to acquire or merge with smaller European window makers, and through this method, Jeld-Wen became one of the leading companies which manufactures windows and doors. Their Australian counterpart did the same, creating several subsidiaries in the process. They have controlled the industry in the Pacific and almost all contractors in the area choose them for installing windows and doors. In Canada, Jeld-Wen started to have their presence felt in 1996. The number of sales center under its name grew to seven, and they keep on expanding as their global presence increases.
