Founded in 1986, this family-founded business has grown consistently for more than three decades into a business of more than 100 employees. Jim Miller, QMI President and founder, desired to be a successful businessman like his father, and purchased Mid Continent Rolling Shutter in Naperville, Illinois. Jim had traveled to Europe where exterior rolling shutters are commonplace due to high energy costs and the greater efficiency of exterior window treatments. Jim named the new company Qualitas Manufacturing, Inc. and expanded the product lines. In 2002, QMI moved to its present headquarters at 1661 Glenlake Drive, Itasca, Illinois.
QMI was recapitalized by Prospect Partners in 2017 along with management. Under Prospect and management’s ownership, QMI has continued to develop new physical security barrier products and to grow revenue as it expands its sales channels.
