PELLA, Iowa , March 14, 2022 (press release) –

Pella joins the ranks of Samsung, Ford, Motorola and more

How does a legacy window and door brand find itself among the top 10 Most Innovative Design Companies in the world? Chalk it up to 97 years of continuous improvement and unrivaled design prowess.  

This week, Pella Corporation joined the ranks of Fast Company’s list of World’s Most Innovative Design Companies for 2022. As the first window and door manufacturer to make the cut, Pella landed the No. 8 spot for its game-changing Easy-Slide Operator hardware solution.  

“Innovation and the continuous pursuit of a better way are at the heart of everything we do. To see the hard work of our team reflected in Fast Company’s list this year is a tremendous achievement and a testament to the caliber of talent we have here at Pella,” said Tim Yaggi, CEO of Pella Corporation

The World’s Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company’s signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy. 

Last year, Pella introduced the Easy-Slide Operator, creating a new way to open and close casement and awning windows by easily sliding the operator up or down. The hardware solution has been broadly recognized for design excellence earning accolades as Most Innovative Window (Window + Door), Most Valuable Product (Residential Products) and Top 30 Most Innovative Products (Dotdash Meredith’s Beautiful Kitchens & Baths magazine), to name a few.

Pella kept pace with its trend for innovative products again this year when it launched Hidden Screen in February 2022, the first and only hidden screen for vinyl windows among leading national window brands. The screen innovation was met with resounding excitement from homeowners and is yet another example of Pella’s deeply rooted commitment to leading the industry with breakthrough solutions.
