May 21, 2019 – ENERGY STAR Canada has announced that the Canadian, family owned company Centennial Windows & Doors is the winner of their prestigious 2019 Manufacturer of the Year award. The 2019 ENERGY STAR Canada Awards are in recognition of excellence in market transformation and the ongoing advancement of the “Five A’s” in Canada: availability, awareness, accessibility, affordability and acceptability of energy efficient products.
Based in London, ON, Centennial Windows & Doors sells, manufactures, installs, and services their own complete line of award winning, replacement residential windows and entry doors. Established in 1981 and having completed over 500,000 window and door installations across Ontario, Centennial has proven their commitment to providing homeowners with highly energy-efficient products and services that exceed their customers’ expectations. They are well recognized as leaders in the energy efficiency sector and were the first window manufacturer and retailer to qualify for Natural Resources Canada’s ENERGY STAR program. They are no strangers to recognition as a distinguished organization coming off of four previous victories at the ENERGY STAR Canada Awards, as well as the 2009 winner of the Better Business Bureau Business Integrity Award and the 2015 winner of the London Chamber of Commerce’s Business Achievement Awards.
As a company, they are a stunning example of Canadian-made talent and they celebrate the people behind their achievements every bit as much as they do their superior grade products. Their factory staff are an integral part of the company’s ability to achieve and maintain their exceptional product performance standards while their installation experts are renowned within the fenestration industry for their technical capabilities. At the heart of the Centennial Difference lies every employee who strives each day to provide industry-leading customer service. “Our pride in our product is matched only by our pride in our people here at Centennial. They are the real difference makers here, and we could not have hoped to achieve all that we have without the talented technicians and customer service representatives who come together to make a positive impact on the lives of our customers and the environment. We’re honoured to be this year’s winners,” says George Warren, President and Owner of Centennial Windows & Doors; an award winner himself, as the 2018 recipient of the C.P. Loewen Award for his life-long contributions to the window and door industry.
During the 2018 calendar year, Centennial Windows & Doors showed its commitment to fostering energy efficiency in Canada with a product line of fully ENERGY STAR certified windows – a sustained effort since 2003; increased their number of ENERGY STAR certified door systems by a staggering 124% (89 models to 199 models); actively certified and marketed a full window product line that met or exceeded the 2018 ENERGY STAR Most Efficient guidelines; engaged over 13,000 Ontario homeowners in conversation about the Centennial – ENERGY STAR promise to maximize energy efficiency in their homes and reduce carbon emissions; and successfully completed over 800 rebate submissions through the GreenON Rebate incentive.
“Energy efficiency in our homes and buildings helps Canadians save money, creates jobs, reduces pollution and contributes to our clean energy future,” said the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources. “I congratulate Centennial Windows & Doors for their ongoing leadership in improving energy efficiency in Canada.”
