Claco Supply Company, Inc.

Architectural Products

Established 1961

In my role as the Accounting Client Account Manager, with CS3 Technology; I am given the opportunity to get to know a lot of interesting people every day. Most of the people I meet are in manufacturing and distribution companies throughout the United States. I often learn about various aspects of their business over lunch – but mostly by way of telephone and internet (via monthly webinars). I’ve befriended many and have been introduced to the staff and have gained a greater understanding of each of their businesses and how each finds value with CS3 Technology as their business partner. I was chatting with Jeannie Showell last month with Claco Supply. She was excited to announce that this year her family-owned business are celebrating 50 Years in business this year. They have been running the Sage Business Works accounting system for many years and absolutley love it.

Congratulations Claco Supply Company!!! Meet Jeannie, and the entire Claco Supply staff – also “Heathen” in their Security department

About Claco Supply Company, Inc. Chester L. Anderson originally founded the company in 1932. It was known as the Chester L. Anderson COmpany. They primarily sold steel windows, custom hollow metal overhead doors, New Castle Products (Modernfold®) accordion doors, incinerators and revolving doors.

In 1955 Roger S. Woodman started working for the Chester L. Anderson Co. and purchased it in 1961. The name was officially changed to Claco Supply, Inc. The same lines of products were sold plus the addition of toilet partitions, skylights, trash compactors and chalk and tack boards. New products were added to keep up with construction technology such as aluminum pre-glazed windows, pre-finished pre-machined wood doors and pre-finished hollow metal frames to name a few. In the late 1970's Claco Supply took on Kalwall® Translucent Panels System. It has been very popular with architects and owners. Also, Claco has taken on the duties of being a subcontractor for many large skylight and folding door jobs. In 1990 Mr. Woodman retired and Keith Showell became the General Manager of the company. Mr. Showell has been with Claco full time since 1977 and became the owner in 1991.
