Woman-owned and Operated Manufacturer of Custom Architectural Metal Products

  • Louvers About Page

Industrial Louvers, Inc. (ILI) is a customer-focused, woman owned and operated manufacturer of custom architectural metal products including architectural louvers, equipment screens, decorative grilles, sunshades and column covers. Since 1971, we have met the needs of designers, contractors and subcontractors across all segments of the construction industry. Our position as a leader in the industry is not only based on our reputation of crafting products of the highest quality and providing un-matched customer service, but draws from our commitment to sustainability, our employees, and our local community.


Our quality and reliability are achieved through a commitment to maintaining a quality team, continuous improvement in our operations and extensive in-house manufacturing and finishing capabilities. Our culture supports an empowered workforce that is encouraged to innovate.  Our products are all made in the United States, manufactured and finished in our Delano, MN location. In-house finishing allows us to control quality and scheduling to ensure prompt delivery.


ILI works closely with our regional representatives, construction teams, and manufacturers to customize products that fit our customers’ needs. Many of our customers turn to ILI because, unlike other manufacturers, we design our products to integrate seamlessly with a wide range of substrates, including other manufacturers’ curtain wall.


We illustrate our product performance through extensive testing. Many of our louvers are tested and verified by the Air Movement and Control Association International (AMCA), and bear the AMCA rating seal. Our custom sunshades and equipment screens are engineered on a job-to-job basis to ensure compliance with applicable performance requirements.


The product line is brought to market by an experienced network of independent representatives on behalf of our company throughout the country. Our rep partners provide local support and service.


At ILI, we understand that leadership  brings an obligation to contribute to our industry and our community. Almost since our inception, ILI has  advanced the integrity of the industry through participation in AMCA. Our CEO & President, Jo Reinhardt has served in many leadership roles, including president of the organization.


We are active in promoting sustainability and environmental awareness throughout our own operations and the industry.  We are actively involved with U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and the Minnesota Chapter of the USGBC through sponsorships and volunteer support. We are proud leaders in transparency and actively participate in the Health Product Declaration Collaborative (HPDC). Our Director of Sales & Marketing and Sustainability Champion, Lisa Britton, CSI, CCPR, LEED AP BD+C, GGP is Vice Chair of the HPDC’s Technical Committee. In an effort to shift the industry toward a sustainable future, we administer an extensive vendor survey and prioritize work with vendors that demonstrate a strong commitment to transparency.


We are also participating in the International Living Futures Institute’s Living Product Challenge. The Challenge involves creating products that not only have minimized social and environmental footprints, but have a strong positive impact on the environment and society by providing power, water, treating waste. Living Products enrich human life through their beauty and functionality. For more information, see our sustainability page.


Industrial Louvers, Inc. is certified as a woman owned and controlled business by the National Women Business Owners Corporation, the first national certifier of Women Business Enterprises (WBE). We are also certified by many individual states and municipalities. We are the only manufacturer of custom architectural metals with this national designation.
