Gorman Company is part of a privately owned American company founded in Philadelphia in 1858. Our parent company, Hajoca, is named by combining the names of the founders, Haines, Jones, and Cadbury. Hajoca is one of the largest private wholesale distributors with approximately 350 locations in the United States. Gorman Company, as you know us, was founded in 1939 and was purchased by Hajoca in 1991. We currently operate from 37 locations in the state of Florida.
As a privately held decentralized company, we are not subject to the demands of Wall Street shareholders. We utilize the strength of Hajoca to negotiate the best pricing on the best products, but we make our business decisions at the local level. Each Gorman Company branch is slightly different, based on the needs of our local contractors. Gorman Company operates under a profit sharing model at each location, giving our associates a sense of ownership, providing top notch service. The business you give us each day personally impacts our team members and local economy. At Gorman Company in Gainesville, we are proud to have aligned ourselves with the best and most successful customers in our industry.
Our growth is a direct reflection of your success, and our commitment to assist you in any way is unwavering. We proudly operate by the Hajoca motto: SERVICE, INTEGRITY, and RELIABILITY.
