The Kellner Family
Sebastian Kellner grew up in Germany working in the family business where he gained experience in management, foreign trade, and construction. Two years after marrying his Canadian sweetheart Breanne, they decided to move to Canada to begin a new adventure together. Once in London, Ontario, Kellner Innovations Inc. was founded; a company that creates new and innovative products to make everyday life easier.
We can improve your home’s energy efficiency, as well as give you peace of mind by increasing your home and business security.
Heinz and Florence Lehnen started DDK Security & Shade Products in 1982. It was their vision that brought roll shutters, a relatively unknown product in Canada, to this area; a product that will save you significant heating and cooling costs, while providing increased security against theft, vandalism and break-ins. Almost 4,000 customers and 10,000 installations later, DDK was a leader in the field of roll shutter sales, installation and repair of all roll shutter products in the Southwestern Ontario area.
In 2004 Bob Rye started training with Heinz and when it was time for Heinz to retire, Bob Rye and Norma Marten took over the operations.
Having worked in the manufacturing sector for over 25 years, Bob brought valuable knowledge and experience. Combining his experience with the knowledge of roll shutters passed down from Heinz, Bob was able to give customers high-quality products that were intelligently built to reduce waste and cost to consumers as much as possible. His commitment to craftsmanship is something we will always keep alive.
Bob Rye will be forever known as having superb knowledge of the products used within this industry. Bob’s customer connections are so valuable and treasured as he has always ensured that the customer is provided with fair pricing and exceptional service. For the past 18 years Bob has poured his heart, time and capacity for knowledge into the business and it’s shown by his extensive list of customer connections all over Southwestern Ontario, these customers deeply trust and value his service.
Sunrise Rollups and Shades (DDK) has remained a leader in the field of roll shutter sales, installation and repair of all roll shutter products in Southwestern Ontario because of Bob’s knowledge and dedication to the business!
