Do you know why we are able to provide the best built shutter in Texas? Because we work with the best milwork company in Texas: O'Hair Shutters and Milwork in Lubbock, TX. They've earned their reputation for quality and integrity as a family business for over four generations and 74 years.

In 1940 Roy O'Hair was a farmer with a penchant for woodworking. With a $500 investment he went into the venetian blind business, setting up shop on College Avenue in Buddy Holly's hometown of Lubbock, Texas. Having learned the values of honesty and hard work as a depression-era west Texas cotton farmer, his dedication to quality and customer satisfaction resulted in a booming business, with O'Hair dealers springing up across the southwest. Within 12 years he had over 400 dealers and the business was the largest of its kind between Dallas and the west coast. His son R.J. started by helping out in the afternoons after school, taking over the reins after returning from the pacific in 1945. In 1964 R.J. applied his expertise in venetians to building top quality shutters, transforming the company into O'Hair Shutters, Ltd.

By the 1990's the public demand for O'Hair shutters was overwhelming and plans were drawn up for a massive new 40 acre facility. By this time, O'Hair Shutters had revolutionized the industry by introducing high-tech manufacturing and then, under the hands-on direction of the third generation of the family, O'Hair introduced an advanced on-site design and online ordering process that is channeled directly into computer-driven job-specific precision milling. The fourth generation of the family is now fully engaged in advancing O'Hair's leading edge by integrating state-of the-art design and manufacturing with the indispensable element of human craftsmanship.

There have been many imitators over the years, basing their businesses on cheap imports and inexpensive synthetic materials, but O'Hair's commitment to genuine American hardwoods, rock-solid construction, advanced design, respect for the environment and the basic principles of honesty, trustworthiness, and reliability continue to make our products the very best in the business. This is not just a matter of principle — it is a point of family pride, as it has been for three quarters of a century.
