The Empire Company
The Empire Company was founded in 1946 as a small regional distributor of building materials serviced from a single location. During the 60's and 70's, the company's focus began to shift from rough construction products to millwork.
In 1991 a new leadership team came with a vision to expand Empire's distribution roots beyond the Midwest. Since that time, Empire has grown into one of the largest millwork distribution and manufacturing companies in the United States. With a geographic footprint that touches the majority of the eastern half of the United States, Empire is well positioned for continued expansion.
