Tacoma, Wash. (April 13th, 2016) – Milgard® Windows & Doors is pleased to be recognized for 50 years of service and membership with American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA).
When Milgard first began working with AAMA, they were actively involved in the development of the field testing and forensic investigation standards. This would aid in creating a structured problem solving approach to determine root cause of fenestration, water and air infiltration issues.
“AAMA is honored to recognize the 50 years of dedicated service and countless contributions from the people of Milgard Windows & Doors,” said AAMA President and CEO Rich Walker. “Their longevity speaks volumes about their commitment to the fenestration industry.”
“Product Certification is why we joined 50 years ago,” said Kim Flanary, Engineering Director for Milgard Manufacturing, who has been involved with AAMA for over 10 years. “We’ve evolved with AAMA and have been very active with participating in standards development, which is their strength.”
Education has always been a focus of AAMA and Milgard helped develop the InstallationMasters® and FenestrationMasters® Training and Certification Programs for installers of windows and doors all across the country. These courses help AAMA members elevate their expertise in the fenestration industry.
Milgard windows and patio doors are tested by a third party to meet the AAMA Gold Label Certification on performance standards in the industry. Highly recognized, the Gold Label is a go-to resource for code enforcement, architects, builders, many manufacturers and even consumers. This simple, permanent label verifies performance requirements for the product and even provides manufacturer identification should parts or service be needed.
