Vista Windows Opts to Make vs. Buy IG Using Quanex Technologies

May 06, 2014

In early 2013, Warren, Ohio-based Vista Windows decided to take control over its own quality and delivery time by making its own IG in-house versus buying from an outside source. Most recently, the company expanded its offerings and commitment to quality by exclusively adopting Quanex’s Edgetherm® sealants with plans to private-label the technology for its customers.


“We’re always looking for opportunities to bring the greatest amount of value to our dealers and end users and for us that means controlling the process every step of the way,” said Tony Kesicke, director of sales and marketing, Vista Windows. “When we saw the energy performance and durability we could achieve with Quanex’s Edgetherm products, the decision was simple. These are products we need to offer to our customers.”


Vista Windows has plans to private-label Quanex’s Edgetherm 3400 hot-applied desiccant matrix and 3500 single-part butyl rubber-based sealant under the Ensur-A-Seal brand name. These products are available immediately.


“We’ve had close ties with Quanex in the development of our high-end Eco-Sure IG line featuring Duralite®,” Kesicke said. “This agreement marks the next evolution of our products and ongoing commitment to quality.”


Vista Windows sells primarily through dealers and distributors. For more information on Vista’s products or becoming a Vista Windows dealer, visit
