In 1949, Francis West moved to Martinsville, Virginia, and opened West Window Corporation. Over the next six decades, what started out as a distributor of Rusco Storm Windows grew into a large regional manufacturing company of multiple window and door systems (see site map for our service area).
After graduating from Georgia Tech, our majority Owner and Chairman, W. E. Giesler, moved back home to Martinsville, Virginia, and went to work for Francis West in 1951. Soon after W. E. arrived, we began manufacturing our own line of storm windows and doors. As the business grew and expanded, we partnered with selected dealers throughout the mid-Atlantic who would professionally sell and install our products.
The key to our success over these many years comes from our belief that this is a people business that relies on attention to details and unparalleled customer service. If you need us, all you have to do is call. We are here to help. We answer our phones - no automated recordings that funnel you to a messaging system that leaves you with that lost feeling.
