ANAHEIM, Calif., Oct. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Window & Door magazine announced Walker Windows as Dealer of the Year for Overall Excellence. Walker Windows was recognized for "Leadership in the Professional Market."
"We are honored to receive this award from such a prestigious industry publication," said Troy Jenkins, owner of Walker Windows.
Jenkins started Walker Windows in 1999 from a small apartment in Huntington Beach as a salesman for a manufacturer, selling direct to new home builders. "I started in multifamily apartments because that's where my customer base was. We grew it from there, got our name out in the market and started taking on some single-family builders," said Jenkins. Today Walker Windows employs 24 full-time employees.
Jeremy Flynn, Sales Manager with Milgard Windows & Doors, points out that Jenkins' commitment to partnering with customers sets Walker Windows apart during a market in which many competitors are scrambling to grab a limited number of jobs. "The Walker team separates themselves from their competitors by being seen as a trusted advisor," he says. "Their reputation with their customers is one of service, quality and partnership."
According to Jenkins, the Walker Windows philosophy is "To be successful in our business we need to be able to provide a quality product and superior service to our customers."
Walker Windows is now located in a 28,000 square foot facility in Anaheim, California. With this space, Walker Windows is able to provide flexibility and services to its customers that other window dealers do not.
Walker Windows is also quick to get involved with community service projects brought to the company from vendors or customers. They recently partnered with Milgard Windows & Doors to provide windows for Laura's House, an emergency shelter in Orange County, Calif., for families impacted by domestic violence. "Walker is a first-class operation and Milgard is proud to have them as our partner," notes Jeremy Flynn. "It is very rare to find a dealer so dedicated to their employees, trades and charities."
Walker Windows focuses on the needs of the customer, making certain to recommend the right windows and doors for each project. They assist in all levels of design and construction by working with architects, owners, developers and contractors. They have a fully certified AAMA team of installers and take pride in every job.
