It all began at the turn of the century on the lonely prairies of Southern Manitoba, Canada. Here in the village of Steinbach a group of Mennonite families had migrated from Russia. Among the first things made by the Loewen family were humble items like church pews and bee keeping equipment. But soon windows and doors became their specialty.
Operating from a single factory going on 110 years now, Loewen’s reputation is one of inspirational design and custom capabilities. For luxury homeowners – and the architects, designers and custom builders that create their dreams—Loewen is the brand that delivers an unrivaled combination of performance, artisanship and environmental sensibility.
Unlike other window manufacturers, Loewen uses only Coastal Douglas Fir (Pseudotsuga Menziesii) or Mahogany in their frames and sashes. These tightly grained wood species do more than just provide a rich, warm texture; they’re also naturally tough and resilient, yet incredibly workable for precision milling.
Combined with state of the art 2 and 3 pane glazing, aluminum or copper exterior cladding, retractable screens and high-quality hardware, Loewen offers an infinite number of combinations to satisfy the most creative architects and designers in the world. They are a company where opposites exist in harmony: the old and the new, delicate beauty yet steely toughness. Design.create.inspire
