The success of Francis Schulze Company would not be possible without the professional support of its business partners throughout the country.

The year 2016 was another positive one of growth for Francis Schulze Company. The residential building market continued to show optimistic results in housing data throughout our distribution territory. The repair and remodel markets as well added to the overall advancement of the company. Successful multi-family housing projects and the additional market share development of light commercial entry door systems allowed Francis Schulze Company to continue progression in the wholesale building industry.

Francis Schulze Company would like to thank all of its employees for their longtime commitment. The 35 employees are all truly dedicated and strive to meet the highest detailed quality with the desire to maintain extreme levels of efficiency. Company success is dependent upon all of our employees and they are all very much appreciated.

The year 2017 will pose challenges to our company, but the residential building market forecast remains encouraging. Economic conditions and the rising cost of raw materials, health insurance and transportation will remain a major emphasis toward setting budgets for the upcoming year.

The company commitment to quality products, manufacturing excellence and superior customer service has made Francis Schulze Company the wholesale distributor of choice for over 60 years.
