DISCOVER OUR HISTORY
The History of the Urzedowski Factory
For over 25 years, the Urzędowski factory has been among the leading Polish manufacturers of wooden joinery. From the beginning, we focused on innovation, which we recognize as a source of competitive advantage. Our current position, based on customer recognition, is the result of systematic investments in new technologies, modern machinery, and improving functional and aesthetic standards of our products. By implementing innovative solutions, that have become the key to our success, we set new trends in the manufacture of windows and doors, thereby stimulating the development of the industry. We are continually expanding the production potential, since the start of our operations in 1989. Our current production capacity is close to several thousand windows per month, with the possibility of increasing this in our facility which has an area of 38,000 square meters.
1989 / 1990 – Single-windows
At the turn of 1989 and 1990, single-windows were introduced to our current manufacturing production. They exceeded the parameters and functionality of the Casement windows locking system, which were produced at that time. Introducing a pioneering solution, we also broke away from the misguided idea that wooden windows are difficult to close, leaky and non-functional.
1990 / 1991 – Envelope Fittings
The introduction of the envelope fitting, resulted from the implementation of new windows structure. They guaranteed a very high level of tightness, as they were mounted inside the frame, around the perimeter of the seal, which was very firmly pressed against the window frame.
1997 – Meranti wood and window units of standard: Ug=1,1 W/m2K
The use of exotic species in the production of wood windows, was the undisputed breakthrough. Up to this time, window joinery had been based solely on native species. The introduction of Meranti was a major innovation that set trends over the following years. We were the first leading manufacturer which decided on such an innovative product, at an affordable price. The year, 1997, was exceptional, due to the fact that we were the first manufacturer in the industry to introduce double-glazed window units to clients and customers, with a coefficient heat transfer of 1.1; for a long time Urzędowski was the only factory which had such a high product standard.
1998 – Wagner / Eisenmann Automated Electrostatic Spraying Line
A year later, we implemented a Wagner / Eisenmann automated spraying line which replaced the slow productivity, and less accurate, practice of hand painting. Thanks to electrostatic technology, the quality and thickness of the varnish layer, remains under precise control and it is repeatable for each production batch.
2001 – Stylistic model, Softline
Subsequent innovations not only brought tangible performance benefits, but also some aesthetic ones. We introduced a window profile 68, model Softline, in 2001. Reduced sharp edges ensure extended paint durability, and also makes them easier to keep clean. Moreover, the implementation of the Zipper mounting glazing bead, has allowed the aesthetic and stable adhesion to the seal of the frame.
2003 – External Doors Line, 88mm Profile
In August 2003, to recognize the needs of customers who value complexity, the company expanded the range of external doors – with an 88mm thickness profile. This included different designs and were available in standard, and non-standard, sizes and shapes. By introducing a door with an individual design to our range, once again we proved that a quality product can be offered at an affordable price.
2004 – The 88mm Window Profile
By this time, our range was complemented with interior window sills and this model was designed to fit this window production line. The use of similar coatings, and methods of their application, ensured maintaining the homogeneous colour scheme. While extending our range, we kept putting in a lot of effort to improve other existing products. The introduction of the 88mm window profile in July 2004, was an expression of the desire to create more energy-efficient windows. It allowed us to use a double-chamber glass pane, which significantly improved the coefficient permeability. The Urzędowski company prioritizes innovation, and continuous product improvement, as a foundation of their success. We are constantly searching for new solutions, in order to meet the growing expectations of our clients and customers. We expertly combine innovation, quality and affordability, and make our products available for everyone.
