MASTER METTLE WINNER
Weather Tight Corp.
Projected 2018 revenue: $14.8 million
A boom in the construction and remodeling industry and investments in technology have fueled the growth of West Allis-based Weather Tight Corp.
The company specializes in selling and installing products on the exterior of homes, including windows, siding, gutters, roofing and doors.
Tod Colbert, president of Weather Tight, started the business in 1986, after the window company he was working for closed. Todd Schulz joined the company in 1990 and now serves as vice president and co-owner.
Today, Weather Tight has more than 100 employees. It recently hired a new customer service manager and has found new ways to strengthen its customer service model.
“We are always looking to improve the customer experience and add to the products and services we offer,” Colbert said.
Weather Tight expects to see continued growth within the company. Colbert and his team are currently exploring the possibility of adding a new decking product and will also expand its marketing efforts to garner an increased market share.
