Today, as for the past 60+ years, VELUX is the world leader in roof windows and skylights. This is no accident. It is a result of our intense focus on creating the best quality, most energy efficient daylighting products available.
The company’s name came from the first two letters of the three owners who founded Pohaki Lumber. Steve Pogorelce, Newton Hahne and Clarence Kintner purchased a yard that was built in 1896 as a retail store for a local sawmill and was known as W.T. Bailey Lumber Company. It continues to be a family run operation going into the third generation. Al & Mary (Steve’s daughter) Williams purchased it from Steve Pogorelce in 1988 and Brandon & Heather (Al & Mary’s daughter) Seppala purchased it in 2008.
