Gorell Family, Indiana, PA
Gorell Enterprises was a manufacturer of specially engineered, custom-manufactured windows for replacement and new construction applications, patio doors, aluminum storm windows and doors, sun rooms, and conservatories. The roots of the company can be traced to the very origin of the replacement window industry. In 1947, the Gorell family began a successful window manufacturing operation, and in the 1960s it pioneered the concept of the replacement window. Until then, the innovation of producing custom-made windows to replace less efficient windows with minimal structural alterations to homes was unknown.
Wayne Gorell later founded Gorell Windows & Doors on the philosophy that homeowners will purchase top-quality windows and doors for their homes for their numerous benefits as well as the peace of mind knowing they'll never have to replace them again. Instilling a spirit of constant improvement and innovation into his company, Gorell was known for constantly pushing his employees to design and manufacture the finest windows and doors in America.
In 1999, Gorell was ranked number 30 on the INC 500 list of the country's fastest-growing privately-held companies. The company was also selected as the only window manufacturer to partner with the National Crime Prevention Council. In addition, Gorell was honored with the Energy Star Sustained Excellence Award after being named Partner of the Year in the "windows" category for three consecutive years.
