Our History

Mary Lou Ralston founded Lutek in 1968, making draperies for friends and family in her basement. Since then, we have grown into a multi-million dollar business with a reputation for producing high-quality products and building lasting relationships.

Building on her mother’s legacy with a renewed vision, Kelli Beckish has served as the President since 2000. Together in 2007, Mary Lou and Kelli purchased the 18,000-square-foot building we had been leasing for 10 years. Through boom times and lean years, we have remained invested in this community and in doing business in Colorado.

We have our sights set on growth. In 2018 we moved to a new 36,000-square-foot headquarters and manufacturing facility in Arvada. We look forward to expanding our capabilities and continuing to serve our fellow Colorado businesses by rolling up our sleeves and rolling out shades.
