Our Story

Tom Vidmar Grandpa

Anlin Industries, also known as Anlin Window Systems, was founded in 1990 by Tom Vidmar and his two sons Eric and Greg. With valuable manufacturing experience working for Ford Motor Company, and as a CertainTeed window manufacturer – Tom and his sons set out to create a company that would make the finest vinyl replacement windows in the industry.

First came designs that optimized energy efficiency, beauty, functionality, and durability. Then came the choice of top quality materials which were assembled in a manufacturing facility equipped with the latest technology. And finally came a commitment to provide its Dealer network world class service delivered by highly trained employees/technicians equipped with a fleet of fully stocked service vehicles. Anlin quickly became the top choice of window dealers and homeowners throughout California and Western Regions.

Tom believed Anlin’s success flowed from a simple philosophy that the Anlin team was a family, and its Dealers and Homeowners were part of that family. Even his Anlin I.D. badge simply read “Grandpa.” His vision inspired Anlin to build the best and be the best. Anlin has always been known for a safe and happy work environment, world-class products and service, and spirit of giving back to the community.

Tom passed away in August of 2014, but his vision still inspires Anlin’s success. John Maloney (President), Eric Vidmar (Executive Vice President) and Greg Vidmar (Vice President) continue to grow the family business and preserve their legacy.

Anlin Window Systems, recognized as California’s Best Brand and Western Region’s top vinyl replacement windows and doors, has been ranked as a Top 100 Manufacturer by Window & Door Magazine for 20 years. And the company is proud that its family has grown to almost 400 team members building millions of windows for satisfied homeowners. Anlin's focus on Dealers and commitment to Homeowner satisfaction in its products and service is the company's hallmarks, earning Anlin 5-star ratings on review and opinion sites such as YELP and others.

Who we are makes us great at what we do.

Serving Our Community

Giving back to the community has been part of Anlin’s fiber from the beginning. It came naturally to Anlin founder, Tom Vidmar, and it comes naturally to us still. We have a completely employee-driven community action team called the “Volunteer Squad.” In association with great organizations like Ronald McDonald House, Make A Wish Foundation, Habitat for Humanity ReStore, and Community Food Bank, Anlin’s Volunteer Squad mobilizes to meet needs, lift spirits and improve the lives of our neighbors.

As a company, Anlin has taken the lead or a partnership role in many community outreach efforts. Especially dear to our hearts is our relationship with Easterseals of Central California. Each year we sponsor the Tom Vidmar Memorial Golf Tournament with proceeds supporting the work of Easterseals. We’re so pleased that over the past 16 years – with the help of Anlin’s wonderful friends, vendors and customers – the tournament has provided Easterseals more than $570,000 to help with the life-changing services they provide. We also joined Easterseals’ efforts to replace old windows on 14 cabins and other buildings at Camp Harmon in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. The site offers a true mountaintop camping experience to people with disabilities, and we’re excited to be a part of that magic.
