History Portland Fire Boat Windows

Since it’s creation in 1955, Cornell-Carr Company, Inc., has succeeded in producing the finest marine windows and doors on the market. We have put together a winning combination of people, product and management philosophy that makes us the standard that others thrive to achieve. Our employees are our most valued resource and they understand the importance of putting pride in their work. Every window and door manufactured has been carefully constructed using the standards we have helped establish.

Cornell-Carr has definitely come a long way from the one room garage where this company started, to over 50,000 square feet of manufacturing and office space in two towns. Still being a small business, it has been important that we continually improve upon our product and manufacturing process to keep up with customer demands. Cornell-Carr provides marine doors and windows to numerous organizations such as the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Coast Guard, the Bridgeport/Port Jefferson Ferry, and all major U.S. shipyards.

In this article, Cornell-Carr's role in the development of the first electrically heated ship windows is described.
