50th Anniversary: Patio Door Manufacturing Milestone


We’re excited to announce our 50th year of manufacturing quality patio doors. With a long history and commitment to innovation, we’re proud to have reached this milestone.

It Started with Aluminum Patio Doors

It all started in 1968 when aluminum patio doors were the popular material for home replacements. Milgard wanted to do more than just distribute someone else’s product, so, they conducted homeowner researching to determine what features would appeal to customers looking for patio doors. From there, we hired engineers who could develop quality, aluminum patio doors that we could manufacture ourselves.
