Andersen Corporation is the largest window and door manufacturing company in America, based in Bayport, MN. Currently employing more than 9,000 people at more than 20 locations, Andersen was founded in 1903 by Danish immigrant Hans Andersen as a lumberyard for pine logs. In 1905, Andersen originated the “two bundle” method, which streamlined the window construction process. It was nicknamed the 10-Minute Window.
Throughout the 20th century, Andersen remained an industry leader, setting the standard for employee benefits, community activism, and product innovation. Over time, the company expanded into aluminum, vinyl, and fiberglass frame materials, as well as hardware distribution and specialty glass manufacturing. Using techniques developed by Italian inventor Luigi Zanini, Andersen was a pioneer in the wood-cladding process.
In the present day, Andersen remains on the cutting edge of the window industry, offering a range of high-efficiency Energy Star-rated products, and merging with other respected manufacturers like Eagle, now known as Andersen E-Series. Their production facility in Bayport, Minnesota is 2.8-million-square-feet, and the facility covers 65 acres. Andersen offers 100, 200, 400, E-Series, and A-Series windows.
