Know the Founding of Renewal by Andersen® Replacement WindowJuly 17, 2014
Andersen Corporation manufactures over 6 million wood windows and doors each year in its 3 million square foot facility in Bayport, Minnesota and has revolutionized the window and door business for more than 110 years.
It was founded on the 25th of July, 1903 by Danish Immigrant Hans Andersen. Together with his family in Hudson, Wisconsin, they tended to logs that arrived via the St. Croix River and started the Andersen Lumber Company. In 1929, it was changed to Andersen Frame Company before finally being renamed in 1937 to what is now known as Andersen Corporation.
Today, the company is as an international enterprise headquartered in Bayport, Minnesota and employs more than 9,000 at more than 20 locations across North America. Available in 100 markets including Milwaukee, it easily is one of the largest replacement window and door companies in the country.
To cater to homeowners who want simple, reliable window solutions, the Renewal® by Andersen brand was launched in 1995 in Minnesota, with a promise to provide replacement windows with low-maintenance, energy-efficient and custom-made features.
Renewal by Andersen® offers hung, transom, awning, casement and picture models in 100, 200, 400, and A-Series windows. Bow/bay designs are only available in 400 Series. The 100 Series products are made of Fibrex™ – a highly durable composite material made of 60% thermoplastic polymer and 40% wood fiber, while the 200, 400, and A-Series are wood with vinyl cladding on the outside.
