Morantz Inc. began over 70 years ago with Herbert and Evelyn Morantz
who started a custom drapery shop in their renovated home in West
Philadelphia. After a few years they were able to expand into
a small shop and cater to Philadelphia's top interior designers
and other industry clients.
Years later, their son, Stan Morantz,
joined the business. Stan was responsible for screenprinting custom
designs on the draperies which was fashionable at the time. He
utilized the upstairs of his parents shop to open his own screenprinting
business, Imperial Screenprinting, for both the drapery work and

first patented inventions
Stan would watch his parents sew
the draperies and knew there had to be an easier way. He and his
father started to make gadgets to make jobs a little easier. The
first gadget they worked on eventually became their first invention,
the Morantz Pleater Gauge. The Pleater Gauge literally revolutionized
the process of pleating draperies and allowed people to complete
their work in less than half the time of existing methods. The
Pleater Gauge was introduced to a world wide market and was a
huge success. Stan continued to invent equipment for the drapery
workroom trade, eventually creating 52 patented items in all.
This equipment is still used by large workrooms, such as JCPenny
and Sears as well as by mom and pop shops throughout the world.

Several years later, Stan began
to notice a gradual decline in the interest for draperies and
increased popularity of window blinds. He decided to open a new
company, Designer's Vertical Blind, for the manufacture of custom
window blinds. The business did very well. In time, customers
began to call Stan back and ask how to clean the blinds. Always
the entrepreneur, Stan researched methods of cleaning blinds and
realized there was no effective way. He began to develop a process
by which blinds could be cleaned ultrasonically. This research
and development eventually led to the birth of The Baby Blind
Cleaning Machine...the first ever ultrasonic blind cleaner.
Over the past 25 years, ultrasonic
cleaning has become an industry in and of itself…and has
moved well beyond Blinds! Now Morantz Ultrasonic Cleaning Systems
are being utilized in every country throughout the world to clean
blinds, golf clubs, light diffusers, wheelchairs, electronics,
and soot and smoke damaged items with a special line of Firesonic
