Window Specialist is founded as an installation-only company providing labor to general contractors for window installations on school projects. These projects are supplemented with residential sales and installations of windows and doors.
Window Specialist is officially incorporated in New York State, and moves its operations to a new 4-acre property at 188 Erie Street, Lancaster, NY. At this point, Window Specialist begins supplying large multi-family real estate developers with windows and installations throughout New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland, Illinois and Michigan.
A 42' x 60' building addition is completed, expanding Window Specialist's fabrication capabilities to include aluminum storefront and curtain wall assemblies. The installation business grows to include State University of New York (SUNY) projects, Office of General Services (OGS) projects, and other State work including armories, psychiatric centers and correctional facilities.
Another 42' x 60' building addition is completed, and a second 42' x 120' building is constructed.
Window Specialist is officially licensed to operate in Florida. The business begins to phase out residential construction, focusing primarily on commercial and multi-family projects. A full-time automotive mechanic position is added.
Window Specialist and its employees become asbestos, PCB, lead and hazardous material abatement licensed and certified. A historic window and door restoration division is created. Office capabilities are expanded to include Budgeting and Computer Aided Design (CAD) to assist developers, architects, and historians with submissions for financing to the State Historic Preservation Office (SHIPO) and National Parks Department (NPS).
A third 42' x 120' building is constructed. A separate shop is added to handle all aspects of historic window, door, mantle & trim restoration and reproduction.
A fourth 42' x 120' building expansion is completed.
