Elton Manufacturing was started in 1981 by Tom Boer, a Dutch immigrant who got fed up with farming. He is still majority owner of the company today, though Beavan and third partner Pigliarolo take care of most of the day-to-day oversight. There are two manufacturing plants: an extrusion plant, an injection molding plant, plus a warehouse and a tool and die shop. Elton started out extruding weather stripping for garage doors, and to this day its weather stripping remains a market leader and revenue bedrock for the company. But things have grown and diversified over the years. Today, Elton also produces entry door window frames, garage door windows, extruded profiles for windows and doors, laminated products for windows and doors and extrusions for the furniture industry.
