JELD-WEN is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of reliable windows and doors. Our extensive product offering encompasses windows that are sold globally through multiple distribution channels, including retail home centers, wholesale distributors, and building products dealers.
Consistently ranked as Oregon’s largest privately owned company, JELD-WEN began in 1960 as a small Oregon millwork plant with 15 employees, and today it has approximately 20,000 employees across more than 100 locations in the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Australia. These strategically located facilities aim to serve their localities to best accommodate regional preferences and standards, and help minimize resources and costs required for transportation.
JELD-WEN’s secret to longer-lasting wood windows and doors is an exclusive manufacturing process that protects against wood rot, water saturation, and termites. This process is how we make AuraLast Wood. Unlike dip-treated wood, which is common in the industry, JELD-WEN’s vacuum pressure process forces the protective ingredients all the way through to the core of the wood for virtually 100% penetration. We use a closed-loop, water-based system, which reduces volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) by 96% compared to the ordinary method of dip-treating wood in open vats of petroleum-based fluids. Our intense, vacuum pressure process also results in using less preservative to achieve an even greater level of effectiveness. The reliability of AuraLast wood is only available at JELD-WEN.
