Champion’s Denver plant is capable of producing 1,000 custom windows per week. The company also operates its own trucking unit, Champion Logistics. In 2012 Champion launched the Colorbond and Timberbond processes, which enables it to offer custom exterior colors and interior woodgrains on windows.

In addition to its high-performance Comfort 365 Glass technology, Champion has also launched Dynamic Comfort 365 glass which allows homeowners to lighten and darken the tint of the glass in their patio room with the push of a button. The new dynamic glazing option, which allows for increased comfort by reducing the glare and light penetration in the patio room, is expected to be installed in approximately 10 percent of the patio rooms Champion manufactures on an annual basis. Founded in 1953, the manufacturer ranked second in Replacement Contractor’s 2011 Replacement 100 list of the largest replacement contractors with reported 2010 revenue of $317 million.
