When a multi-national window and door company closed shop in the BC market many good, hardworking people lost their jobs, and families their livelihood. Armed with a dream to provide employment for those workers and a new approach to the industry, one of those inspired people dared to forge a new path. Westeck emerged as a scrappy start-up with a chip on its shoulder and a mandate to listen to the needs of their customers. What they learned would form the very DNA of Westeck.
Over the following years Westeck would develop many product firsts, constantly challenging the market status quo that were previously set by larger window and door companies.
With each new product development it became clear that customers no longer wanted standard sized white windows. Combo, SDL, and color options became the norm and the building industry celebrated these options on its most beautiful homes. The success of windows quickly led to demand in doors. Westeck listened and delivered the same transformative products it did only years earlier with windows.
From scrappy start up to recognized leader, today Westeck stays true to its DNA formed nearly 20 years prior. The needs of their customers drives a deep and ingrained research and development program that promises the next generation of products to advance the window, door and patio opening industry. What once started as one man’s dream is now embraced and carried forward by all good and hardworking Westeck employees.
Westeck Windows and Doors now has 28 sales professionals, across offices in British Columbia (Vancouver, Chilliwack, Victoria, Nanaimo, Kelowna) Alberta (Calgary) and Washington State (Seattle), as well as an extensive dealer network throughout North America. Westeck employs over 200 people with the majority of those partners working out of the corporate facility in Chilliwack, British Columbia.
