AS, LLC is a privately held corporation. FAS is Central Florida’s largest volume residential window and door dealer. We have showrooms and distribution facilities in the major metro areas of Tampa, FL and Orlando, FL. The Company was established by the Father and Son team of Ernie and John Wilding in February 2005, with the objective of providing the growing Central Florida community with the best quality windows and doors on the market at reasonable prices, and with a customer service level unsurpassed within the industry.
Customers often ask, “Why the name, FAS”? We’re glad you asked! Ernie and John Wilding have been a well known duo in the S.C.C.A. auto racing community for many years. The name of their racing team is “FAS Autosport”, a moniker that was coined by John when they started racing back in 1999. When the two men designed the concept for the window and door business they carried over the name from their family hobby.
Ernie Wilding, the father, hails from a highly successful business background, having founded two home improvement companies (one in Florida and one in North Carolina) that were then built into strong entities of their own. Ernie, a father of four, fulfilled a long-held personal desire by partnering with his son, John, to found the premier window and door provider in Central Florida.
John Wilding, the Son, was employed in the business insurance industry after college before joining his father as a co-founder of FAS. John’s strong customer service and business knowledge, garnered in the Orlando insurance market, proved to be an excellent strategic complement to Ernie’s experience.
Ernie and John have surrounded themselves with an energetic team of window and door professionals, all with extensive knowledge and vast experience in the old and new Southern window and door industry. FAS prides itself on well over 100 years of combined window and door industry experience within its management team. FAS employees are seasoned professionals with specialized training in the products and services sold.
FAS feels that it is important to give back to the local community, and supports local charities like the Ronald McDonald House and Second Harvest Food Bank.
The Orlando Design Center, now referred to as the Showroom, opened its doors in April 2005, ushering in a new era for Central Florida’s homeowners, builders and contractors. Just one year later, FAS had grown so quickly that a second facility in Tampa was launched, in June 2006.
FAS has an excellent reputation within the industry for providing and installing both new construction and replacement windows to add energy efficiency and beauty to consumer's homes. For those who prefer to install it themselves, FAS Windows & Doors also provides quality material-only sales to contractors and homeowners. FAS is proud to carry Andersen, Simonton, PGT, Provia, and CWS products. FAS is proud to carry some of the nation's top product lines, and also provide superior quality, energy efficiency, and curb appeal to Central Florida’s homes. All products sold by FAS are American-made, bringing jobs home to US workers.
FAS strives to act as a positive force in the community by upholding the highest standards in the industry and ensuring that the best business practices are followed. We look forward to providing Central Florida with exceptional quality and service for many years to come!
