Rollshutters of Waco, Inc. began in 1986 as an answer to replacing traditional window coverings on two large west-facing windows of a home in Woodway, Texas. As the homeowners shopped for pricing on traditional drapery and determined that a suitable alternative needed to be considered, Walter Seeger recalled the first 18 years of his youth in Germany.
Rollshutters are a popular commodity in Germany, and Walter determined that he would locate and install them in his home in Waco. In 1986, two motorized shutters were installed in his home. As luck would have it, friends expressed interest in the Rollshutters and after more installations, the business caught on. With the help of a business partner, Walter Seeger developed a thriving business in Killeen, Texas, where there is a community of military personnel who have seen firsthand the logic of window shutters that reduce heating and cooling costs as well as help prevent vandalism from unwanted intruders.
Advertising in the daily newspaper helped to spur the business on to great success, which has resulted in repeat business with many of the original customers that Rollshutters had. As the business has grown over the years and the original owner, Walter approached retirement; he searched for a capable individual who shared the same visions for Rollshutters of Waco that Walter held. In 2005 Joseph Rankin purchased Rollshutters from Walter and continues to work side by side with Walter as he further develops the company.
