The Earthwise Group, LLC is the nation’s largest alliance of independent window and door manufacturers. The alliance began in 2004 as a small group of manufacturers serving the East, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest.
The group has achieved remarkable expansion through the organic growth of its original Members and the addition of new Members in strategic locations across the United States. Today, the Earthwise Group has distribution in 46 states and manufactures over 1 million windows and doors annually.
Executive Director, Mark Davis, recently announced the addition of three new Members to the group. According to Mr. Davis, “We are proud to welcome three new manufacturers to our family, all of whom will manufacture and distribute Earthwise products in Southwestern markets where we previously had no distribution. The Earthwise Group now has 23 manufacturing locations across the U.S., more than any other window and door brand.” Mr. Davis continues, “Our regional manufacturing philosophy allows us to manufacture energy-efficient products in configurations specifically designed for the local climates in which they will be installed. Nobody else can do that.”
In late 2016, Earthwise Windows of Los Angeles, California joined the alliance. This family-owned business, known locally as Dasan Windows and Doors, was founded in 1995 as a glass distributor. In 2007 they began manufacturing windows and doors in a separate facility. They are currently supplying Earthwise products to dealers and contractors in Southern California.
In early 2017, Earthwise Windows of Tucson, Arizona joined the Earthwise Group. This third-generation family business designs and builds Earthwise products specifically for a desert climate. Known locally as American Openings, this manufacturer uses 100% USA-made parts and sells direct to the trade.
The most recent Member to join the group is Earthwise Windows of Phoenix, Arizona. This new company, known locally as Energy Shield Windows and Doors, was founded by two experts in the fenestration industry.
The owners purchased a production facility and are currently retooling to manufacture Earthwise products for the Phoenix market.
The Earthwise Group has earned numerous third-party certifications. They were the first window manufacturer to be “Made in USA-Certified.” The Earthwise Group is also an ENERGY STAR® Manufacturing Partner. In addition to maintaining several more industry certifications, Earthwise products have earned the Good Housekeeping Seal for 11 consecutive years.
