Over the years we have seen many competitors come and go. We aren't just another window and door company. We pride ourselves on quality and service.
Tempco Products Co. was founded in 1958 in Robinson, Illinois by Mervin J. Stillwell. The company has always focused on manufacturing, producing a number of products over the years including aluminum fishing boats, dry mix concrete, caskets, paint, electric motors and aluminum siding and soffit.
In 1983, Tempco began manufacturing vinyl windows, and that has been its primary product since. Unlike many manufacturers of vinyl window and door products, Tempco has remained in this business for more than 36 years and continues to support its products and warranties. We are proud to say that many of our original windows installed in the mid 1980’s are still fully functioning. Tempco is one of the country’s longest tenured manufacturers of vinyl windows and patio door products.
In 2007, Tempco’s manufacturing operations were converted to lean manufacturing. Our entire manufacturing floor and processes are continually evaluated and monitored to be as efficient as possible. This results in increased flow throughout the manufacturing process and, most importantly, decreased waste.
In late 2019, Steve McGahey, Tempco’s President since 1986, announced that he would be retiring and the company would be closing its doors after 61 years in business. This announcement was met with much trepidation from both long-time customers and employees, many of which had more than 20 years of service with the company. Fortunately, upon hearing the announcement, a group of local business owners agreed to purchase the company.
Chris Thurman, Dave Chamblin and Rusty Reinoehl, the new owners of the business, intend to keep Tempco operating and continue to produce the top-quality vinyl windows and doors it has staked its long history and reputation on. At the same time, they intend to modernize and update the technology, equipment and operations to usher Tempco into the 2020’s and beyond.
Whether you are a long-time distributor, or a brand-new customer, rest assured that Tempco’s hard earned reputation for quality and service, earned over 61 years in business, remains at the forefront of our efforts. However, we do not intend to rest on our laurels! Our customers can expect to see many upgrades and changes over the coming year, including a revamped online presence along with a new e-quote and online purchasing system that we hope will be complete by the end of 2020.
