Founded in 1907 by Fred Palmer and John Donavin, the company got its start making sheet metal and tin ware. Palmer-Donavin is now a leader in the wholesale distribution of residential building supplies and entry doors. Employee-owned and operated since 2007, our mission is to create value for all stakeholders through innovation, performance, and integrity. We acquired Seal-Rite Door, a fabricator of residential entry doors and patio systems, in 2012. We are headquartered in Grove City, Ohio, with 8 branch operations across Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, and Minnesota.
Palmer-Donavin is a Midwest leader in two-step distribution of building materials, flooring, and kitchen cabinets. We purchase our inventory directly from manufacturers and sell primarily to independent lumber yards and contractors.
In March of 2007, the existing shareholders sold the company to the employees through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan, also known as an ESOP. Palmer-Donavin employees now participate in the benefits of ownership and share in the company’s growth.
In 2012 we purchased Seal-Rite Door, an industry leader in the custom fabrication and finishing of quality residential entry and patio door systems. This expanded our locations from Columbus, Cincinnati, Delphos, and Masury, OH to include Hebron, OH, Rockford, IL, Lansing, MI, and Burnsville, MN. – less
