Patrick Industries Inc. has their corporate headquarters office in Elkhart, Indiana, a smallish town about 150 miles to the north of state capital, Indianapolis.

Patrick Industries manufactures and distributes a wide array of products that make life a lot easier and has proven themselves to be so successful at it that the company went public in 1968, only nine years after it was founded.

Company Info Con’t.

By the late 1980s, when the company, guided by a new president, was undergoing a change of direction, Patrick Industries metamorphosed from a recreational vehicle and manufactured housing supplier into suppliers for other, broader, industries, such as cabinet and furniture makers. The company continues to expand and blossom.

Patrick Industries is made up of the following divisions:

Adorn Door

This section of the company creates prefabricated and custom module-type pieces to “adorn” any door or door type.

Custom Vinyls

The custom vinyls division is enormous for Patrick, with branches in Alabama, California, Arizona, Florida, Indiana, Tennessee, Oregon, Texas and Pennsylvania. Patrick facilities have the precision equipment and the professionals to run them to laminate within 2 mil vinyls, low-pressure melamine or 30-50 gram papers. Patrick is thus the top laminator in the entire nation.
