Louver Shop History

Committed to You Since 1972

Founded in 1972, Louver Shop was built on quality and value. Jim Guess and Bill Rives forged this company in Stone Mountain, Georgia. That’s where they manufactured shutters in their garage and spent the summers and winters fighting the extreme temperatures to meet the order demand.

As they became more and more well known for the quality and consistency of their products, the family business grew quickly across the southeast. They soon surpassed their home workshop capacity and transitioned into a larger production facility in the early 1980s.

Since then, Louver Shop has strengthened into the farthest reaching manufacturer and retailer of custom shutters in the United States. Always made in America, Louver Shop shutters have become the industry ideal for quality and innovation with dozens of proprietary processes and patented features.

Today, we are headquartered in Gainesville, Georgia, with a 150,000-square-foot manufacturing space. We work with more than 100 full-time team members who produce a selection of window coverings, with unsurpassed quality and the fastest lead times in our industry.

As we continue to grow, Louver Shop will stay committed to the ethics of hard work and adherence to purpose that have supported our team members, partners, clients and customers for nearly 50 years.

Our history and our people make sure you get the most innovative, highest-quality window treatments available on the market right now. As we begin the second half of a century in business, Louver Shop lives our motto:
