Every Loewen window and door mirrors a fascinating journey.
It began at the turn of the twentieth century on the lonely prairies of southern Manitoba. Here in the village of Steinbach, a group of Mennonite families, including the Loewens, had migrated from Russia.
Among the first things made by the Loewen millwork for the fast-growing community were humble items like church pews and bee-keeping equipment. But soon, windows and doors became our specialties. The key to our success is simple: while we’ve remained faithful to our roots — particularly in our deeply held traditional craft values and our work ethic — we’ve also grown to embrace new technologies and ideas from places as diverse as Europe, Japan, America and, of course, Canada.
We are a company where seeming opposites exist in harmony: the old and the new; delicate beauty and a steely toughness; and pride in craft tempered by an abiding humility. The result is windows and doors that possess a rich heritage, a striking beauty, even a kind of soul you won’t find anywhere else in the world.
For luxury homeowners — and the architects, designers and custom builders who create their dreams — Loewen is the brand that delivers an unrivaled combination of artisanship, experience and environmental sensibility in an extensive line of Douglas Fir, FSC Douglas Fir and Mahogany windows and doors.
