Welcome To Active Door & Window
Active Door & Window Company was founded in January, 1967 by Bob Volk Sr. and his wife Emma. It began with one pick-up truck and the warehouse was Bob's garage in West Islip, Long Island, New York. Rapidly it developed into a larger business as his three sons, then of school age, helped out on weekends, etc. All three sons, Bob, Bill and Ed, entered the business as they graduated school and helped bring the business in New York to what it is today.
Bob Sr. and his wife bought a home in Punta Gorda, Florida in 1987, leaving their three sons in charge of the business in New York. In 1991, Bob opened the Punta Gorda location and his son, Ed, came to Florida to help run the operation. This business succeeded so quickly it now employs over 30 people with an additional showroom in nearby Port Charlotte. As Bob Sr. and his wife are now partially retired and enjoying the Florida lifestyle, Son Ed is now president of the Florida operation.
