Kolbe's success story begins with two brothers and a vision. From our humble beginnings, we have become one of the nation's leading manufacturers of premium quality windows and doors.
Dedicated craftsmanship, attention to detail, and an uncompromising work ethic have been the backbone of Kolbe Windows & Doors ever since brothers Herb and Ervin Kolbe founded Kolbe & Kolbe Millwork Co., Inc. in 1946. The brothers started repairing window frames and building sash in their mother’s washhouse, later moving the business to its current headquarters in Wausau, Wisconsin. In 1975, Kolbe started producing handcrafted wood double hung and sliding windows, eventually expanding into aluminum clad windows, with nationwide sales turning global.
With the leadership of Judy Gorski, Herb Kolbe's daughter, we're proud to carry out Herb and Ervin's vision every day. We are proud to build windows and doors that are found in some of the most visionary residences and commercial projects in North America. Architects and discerning individuals who take building to new levels turn to Kolbe for professional-grade windows and doors that are built to higher standards. They imagine the endless possibilities of their vision, and look to Kolbe for innovation, distinctive options and custom solutions that bring them to life.
