The company is known in the industry for our many industry firsts including the adjustable traverse rod in 1928, the first aluminum Venetian blinds, first S-slat blinds, the first motorized electromagnetic traverse rod, which appeared on the market in 1967, and the introduction of the first cordless blinds in 1989.

As the inventor of the first flat curtain rod, Kirsch founded the company on basic hardware.
