Peter Kohler, founder of Kohltech Windows and Entrance Systems, has died.
Kohler passed away in his sleep Monday morning at his winter home in Florida. He was 77.
Kohler founded Kohler Windows, now Kohltech Windows and Entrance Systems, almost 40 years ago with four employees and built one of the most respected window and door brands in Canada, the company said, in a news release.
He devoted his life to the window and door industry and won many awards for his accomplishments both regionally and nationally.
Kohler retired in 2010 after selling the company to his management team.
“Peter was an extraordinary human, friend, entrepreneur and employer,” stated Kevin Pelley, CEO of Kohltech, who now owns the business with company president Carl Ballard.
“We are committed to continuing the legacy of excellence that Peter created and that has propelled the company to a top national brand with over 500 employees,” he said.
Kohltech continues to be driven by the culture of service, quality, and innovation that Peter founded the company on, the release said.
Funeral and memorial arrangements will be announced when available.
