When customers choose to buy from Pella Windows & Doors of Omaha & Lincoln, they gain access to the experience and service of local professionals who are committed to their satisfaction. Plus, the company stands behind its quality products with some of the best warranties in the business, and Pella has been a leader in technology and product innovation for more than 90 years. The people of Pella Windows & Doors of Omaha & Lincoln are certainly passionate about upholding the company’s outstanding reputation for exceptional customer service and providing residential and commercial clients the right solutions for every project and budget.

And they’re equally passionate about the community. Pella Corporation is headquartered right here in the Midwest — in Pella, Iowa — but Pella’s connection to the Omaha area is more than just neighborly. Pella Windows & Doors of Omaha & Lincoln has served eastern Nebraska and southwestern Iowa for more than 40 years and has been under the same ownership for nearly 20 years, so its local roots run deep.

“Pella takes an active role in the community,” Pella Windows & Doors of Omaha & Lincoln President/CEO Greg Boulay, a native Omahan, says. “Our employees help through a wide variety of activities and many different fundraisers that benefit nonprofit and community organizations. We’ve participated in the Million Meal March to fight hunger. We’ve entered teams in the Corporate Cycling Challenge that boosts trail development in the area. We’ve provided ongoing support for the Abide Network for several years now as this innovative nonprofit transforms the inner city one neighborhood at a time.

For instance, at Christmas we help give gifts for kids in the Abide Network. And at the beginning of the school year each fall, we give them backpacks. When the soup kitchen gets low, we do food drives.” Pella Windows and Doors of Omaha and Lincoln operates according to an employee-created set of beliefs and drivers, Boulay explains, and one of the strongest drivers on the list is community involvement and environmental responsibility because “it’s the right thing to do.” “It’s our culture. It reflects our beliefs. The employees at Pella Windows & Doors of Omaha & Lincoln are active, community-minded people who are eager to help,” Boulay says. “It’s a corporate culture of positive action and help for those most in need.” The company also gives back by donating materials and labor for construction and renovation projects that benefit the community, from older single-family homes that are part of neighborhood renewal projects to historically significant facilities like Sacred Heart in North Omaha … and much larger, more complex structures that require an uncommonly high degree of expertise.

When the Arbor Day Foundation began renovating the 140-room Lied Lodge and Conference Center in Nebraska City two years ago, Pella Windows & Doors of Omaha & Lincoln was consulted because the facility’s original windows were donated from Pella more than 20 years ago. The company donated 284 windows — including those for a unique 20-foot by 40-foot wall of windows behind an enormous stone fireplace — and 16 French doors for the 2015 remodel.

Pella experts also worked alongside the professional installer to ensure the large-scale project’s success. The window installation took three and a half months and the remodel wrapped up last August, just in time for the fall apple-picking season at Arbor Day Farm where Lied Lodge is located.

The materials and labor Pella donated to the National Arbor Day Foundation during the renewal project was valued at more than $422,000, and the acclaimed facility looks more beautiful than ever as it welcomes thousands of visitors from around the world annually. Pella’s continuing dedication to the development and promotion of energy-efficient products and the education of consumers on conservation issues also fits right in with Arbor Day Farm’s environmental stewardship goals.
