FERGUSON INDUSTRIES – HISTORY
Ferguson Industries, Inc., a Michigan Corporation that is registered to conduct business as a Foreign Corporation in the State of Illinois, was incorporated as a manufacturer of storm doors and storm windows in Michigan in 1975. In 1978 Ferguson Industries, Inc. created an installation company to handle dealer’s requests for a measure and install program. One of the new programs was the HUD Energy Weatherization Program, and in 1978 we designed, manufactured and installed a burglar-resistant window and door system for HUD with polycarbonate glazing.
During the 1980s Ferguson Industries, Inc. became a local (Detroit) distributor of vinyl replacement windows for Kensington Manufacturing Company, located in Vandergrift, Pennsylvania, with a sales volume of 600 windows; phased out the manufacture of storm doors and storm windows but became a distributor of storm doors and storm windows for Weather King Windows and Doors and Alenco Commercial Windows and Doors. In 1989 Ferguson Industries, Inc. entered into a joint venture with Edward Marable Construction Company of Detroit with whom we bid and received the largest window contract ever with the Detroit Board of Education for windows and installation at the Schools Center Building – a $1.8 million contract changed to $2.5 million with Change Orders. Within the next two years, we bid and won an annual contract of $2.3 million with the Detroit Board of Education for three schools.
In 1991, Ferguson Industries, Inc. opened its Chicago location. We had been asked to become the sub-contractor for window installations for Kensington Manufacturing Company who had just become the licensee to furnish and install windows for Sears’ 28 stores located in the Chicagoland area. During this period, from 1991 until 1993, and while Sears was still involved in the direct sale of windows, Ferguson Industries, Inc. installed over 10,000 windows. When Sears withdrew from the direct sale of windows and named American Home Remodeling (AMRE) as its licensee, Ferguson Industries, Inc. became the installation company for AMRE. By 1997 after AMRE partnered with Century 21 and later disbanded, Ferguson Industries, Inc. acquired other accounts – many of which remain intact at the present time.
