Our History

Vinylmax provides custom-made, high-quality vinyl windows and doors to the New York and New England area. We are located in Clifton Park, New York and serve a variety of trade customers in the Northeast. Our customers include large distributors, lumber yards and local contractors. Vinylmax also supplies a variety of related construction products, such as entry and patio doors.

Vinylmax was founded in the early 1980’s. Jim Doerger founded Enco Industries with the vision of providing quality products with a lightning-quick turnaround. With a team of 5 and an industry leading two week delivery time, the company quickly grew. Enco Industries manufactured thermally broken aluminum windows, and after 2 short years introduced one of the first vinyl windows to the industry in 1984.

Our staff quickly grew from 5 to 17, including a few underage Doerger kids, with a 50 window per day capacity. In a 9,000 square foot manufacturing space, our windows were produced via mechanical construction with no computers.

Our first vinyl window featured siwggle strip glazing, optional hard coat low e ($40 per window), and the average cost for a white, double hung window with clear glass was $150.
