Our History

Craft-Bilt Manufacturing Company was founded in 1946 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by three men who had served their country in World War II. The small business started in the basement of an old schoolhouse as a manufacturer of Venetian Blinds. The three men sold, made and installed the blinds on homes and businesses around the area. Throughout the years, our company continued to grow, and today, over 75 years later, we are a recognized leader and innovator in manufacturing for the home remodeling industry. Through our nationally known brands, Betterliving and Aristocrat, Craft-Bilt Manufacturing Company continues to provide customer service that exceeds expectations. Learn more about our history here.
