On Tuesday, May 7, 2019, Roto Frank of America Inc. celebrated its 40th Anniversary in Connecticut with a celebratory luncheon that included local officials and company executives.

“Endurance isn’t easy and meaningful endurance is even harder. For an organization to endure for 40 years, and to be as relevant today as it was at the founding, is quite an accomplishment,” said president and CEO Chris Dimou during his keynote speech. “But what matters most now is what we do next. We have to, and will continue to, relentlessly pursue what has made us successful in the first place: To create superior customer value.”

Roto Frank of America Inc. was founded in Chester, Conn., in 1979 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Roto Frank AG, headquartered in Germany, with 18 production plants and more than 40 subsidiaries globally. The Roto Group now has a presence in more than 40 countries with more than 4,900 employees.

Roto Frank of America began manufacturing roof windows and distributing tilt and turn hardware. Later on, the company realized the potential that existed in the door and window hardware market, expanding its products toward the North American market.
