Thompson Creek CEO Featured In Qualified Remodeler's Top 500

Thompson Creek on Qualified Remodeler List

Thompson Creek Window Company, the mid-Atlantic’s leading home improvement replacement products company, today announced that CEO Rick Wuest was the subject of the featured profile in Qualified Remodeler's recent Top 500.

Last year Thompson Creek opened a new 117,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Upper Marlboro because its previous 80,000-square-foot building in Landover reached capacity. The larger space has allowed the company to complement its service offerings and expand into roofing, which adds additional products of value to existing clients who already patronize the business.

Rick Wuest, President and CEO of Thompson Creek added, “We’re looking to step on the gas right now and continue to grow. Our biggest opportunity is to expand both inside our marketplace—taking more market share—and to expand our reach geographically.”

In the magazine, Wuest explains that the unique strength of Thompson Creek is the ability to eliminate the middle man. “In 2001 we revamped our business strategy to sell windows directly to customers. As a manufacturer, we focus more on quality than price when we design and install windows from our own elite product suite.” The article also commends the history of the company.

Thompson Creek is one of the first companies in the country to manufacture and install vinyl replacement windows. Fred Wuest founded the company in 1980 and it has grown tremendously since those early days. When he was 13, Rick Wuest lived in the factory his Dad started in response to the energy crisis. His father invested everything and he worked through the ranks in jobs of every facet of the business. Now he believes the biggest satisfaction comes on installation day. Once you make the choice to have Thompson Creek windows installed, a team of construction experts are assigned to your project. A project manager and a project coordinator will work together to ensure satisfaction.
