Cal Deckert & Sons to celebrate milestone: 75 years in business

UNION — In 1940, John Calvin Deckert Sr. founded “Union Window Shade & Awning Company” with nothing more than sheer determination and a crew of four. His wife, Mary, and their three sons, Cal Jr., Bob and Carl, helped him launch his new business venture.

Many long hours helped this hard-working crew pull together at all times, making their family business “one that works,” an accomplishment rarely seen today.

Now, three generations later, they are celebrating their 75th year in business and still serving the public at the same location, 1873 Morris Ave., in their hometown of Union. And the family is still serving the public in the same caring way that Cal Sr. began doing 75 years ago.

The Deckert’s are inviting the public to stop by their showroom and see all the products that the Union Window Shade & Awning Company sells and installs. Cal Deckert Sr., 1st generation, Cal Jr., Bob and Carl, 2nd generation, Robert T. Deckert Jr. and brother Chris Deckert, 3rd generation, are all here to serve you in the same traditional way that has contributed to the Deckert’s success…dealing with customers the old-fashioned, friendly and honest way.

So stop by and say hello to the Deckert’s and everyone at their family business and experience their motto, “giving the best service they can,” first hand.
