Our History

Even though Columbus Window Co. opened on November 29, 1984, the seed for its growth were planted several years prior.  President, Neil Lichtman , was born in Akron, Ohio and graduated from Firestone High School as the class President.  After running Tulane Travel for 3 years and working on several other activities, he graduated from Tulane University and went to work with Alside Supply Co.  The F.A. Kohler Co. was the next stop before starting CWC.  Wife, and co-founder Linda Lichtman  was born in Tokyo, Japan and after several moves with the Air Force, her family settled in Fairborn, Ohio.  After graduating from Fairborn-Baker High School and Wittenberg University, Linda started a career in computers.  With Neil’s home improvement supply experience and Linda’s computer skills, Columbus Window Co. was founded on the principles of outstanding levels of customer service with consistent high quality materials.  Despite a few setbacks with the banks, suppliers, and the SBA, Columbus Window Co. quickly became known as the place to go for windows, doors, siding and gutters.
