Palmer-Donavin, Columbus, Oh., a leading building materials distributor and door fabricator in the Midwest, is changing the name of its Seal-Rite Door Division and rebranding its corporate identity.

For nearly 40 years, Seal-Rite Door has been professionally fabricating and distributing custom Therma-Tru Doors in the Midwest. In 2013, the company was acquired by Palmer-Donavin, but the companies have continued to run as independent businesses until now.

Effective Jan. 1, 2020, Seal-Rite Door will begin operating as Palmer-Donavin.

“Moving forward, we will operate as two divisions: Palmer-Donavin Building Materials Division and Palmer-Donavin Door Division,” said Matt Kaufman, VP of the door division. “With both divisions under one name, we can more effectively drive efficiencies and innovation with the goal of making it easier to do business. Changing our name to Palmer-Donavin allows us to build on the century-long legacy it holds and move forward with one mission.”

A new company logo will be introduced, and both divisions will be represented on one unified website (palmerdonavin.com).
