The gratitude of our customer base at Francis Schulze Company goes out to numerous levels.

Residential and commercial property owners, professional contractors and our group of long-time loyal dealers all represent our building products. The positive customer representation of our product lines has been essential to our continued growth during this lengthy period of economic development in the building materials industry. We say “Thank You” to all of these customers for your continued business support.

2019 was another positive year of growth for Francis Schulze Company. The residential building market continued to show optimistic results in housing data throughout our distribution territory in the Midwestern states. The continued progress of the remodel market and our continued growth of prefinished entry door systems added to the overall advancement of the company. Sustaining trend design changes, successful multi-family housing projects and the market share advancement of light commercial door systems has allowed Francis Schulze Company to continue progression in the wholesale building industry.

In 2019, Francis Schulze Company opened a newly designed public showroom featuring over 75 entry door styles. Showcasing multiple design trend levels, the beautiful new showroom of prefinished entry doors is a must see when searching for that perfect fit for your home. This state-of-the-art design center allows for consumers to enter the showroom by appointment (email [email protected]) and leave with colored digital documents to share with our dealer network. Another way in which Francis Schulze Company creates an ease of doing business with our customers.

The company is looking forward to 2020 as another encouraging year in the building industry. Continued low interest rates, encouraging building permits, residential housing forecast, multi-family construction data and overall positive economic conditions point toward a favorable outlook for 2020.

Anticipated challenges to the company in 2020 will continue. We see these challenges as an opportunity to strengthen our team building principles by working together to resolve these encounters. Employee obtainability, rising cost of raw materials, health insurance and transportation expenses will remain a major emphasis toward setting budgets.
