Charles. W. Kirsch founded the Kirsch Company in Sturgis, Michigan in 1907 to produce his telescoping curtain rod, the first of its kind. By 1923, the company was making over 20,000 curtain rods per day. The company's products were featured in the 1939 Hollywood blockbuster, Gone With The Wind. At some point in time, Kirsch had a Canadian presence out of Woodstock, Ontario.
