TAKING ON MASSIVE COMMERCIAL PROJECTS

STAYING TRUE TO OUR FAMILY HERITAGE

Today, Lockheed is equipped to successfully execute multi-million dollar installation projects. Yet we’re still able to retain the spirit and authenticity of a family-owned business with longtime employees, an unwavering commitment to our customers, and an unrelenting focus on quality and service.

While we shifted away from manufacturing residential windows over the years, we’ve stayed true to our roots and today you’ll still find a Kosiver at the helm. In 1988, Ben and Ruth sold Lockheed Window Corp. to their son, Jeffrey Kosiver, who ran the company for 21 years. In 2009, Michael Kosiver — Jeffrey’s son and our current president — bought the company after beginning here as a teenager and running Lockheed’s installation operations for 18 years.

As our business continues to grow and expand into new markets, we will always maintain our family business mentality and stay true to our heritage.
