later, The Womble Company is still doing that and helping thousands of Oklahoma
families enjoy the home of their dreams with quality Pella windows and doors.
The company began by selling commercial steel windows,
eventually expanding its operation in the 1930s and 1940s to add a variety of

starting his career as a service man.
In 2017, Steve Womble stepped down to bring on Andy Crum and partner Doug Peterson as the new co-owners of the company. Formerly the Vice President of Replacement Sales and Marketing, Crum has been working with the company for over 20 years and Peterson, former Vice President of Operations, has been with Womble for almost 30 years. Crum’s wife, Ainslee Crum, will also be joining the team as the new CFO. With the Crum’s at the front of The Womble Company–Pella Windows and Doors of Oklahoma, it marks the fourth generation of the Womble family to own the company, after Ainslee’s great-grandfather established the company in 1922.
Today, The Womble Company remains one of the celebrated
stories of Oklahoma’s business community. As we approach nearly 100 years in
business, we never forget the values and commitment to quality that has brought
us this far. Treating our customers with respect and offering a quality product
at a fair price will, we hope, guide our company for 100 years to come.
