LANCASTER, Pa. — Gorman Distributors has purchased the right to conduct business for Howard Enterprises, Harrisburg, Pa.
The purchase expands Gorman’s customer base, and Gorman will continue to provide service to Howard’s customers and expand product selections, Gorman says. The purchase, along with recently picked up distributorships for R&B Wire Products, Rema Dri-Vac Corp., Solomatic and others, has made the company into a national supplier.
Gorman Distributors is a family-owned and -operated business headquartered in Lancaster since 1963. Benjamin Gorman started in the coin laundry business in 1960 and decided to venture into wholesaling coin-vend laundry products with his nephew, Damian Gorman. In 2005, Benjamin Gorman retired and Damian and his wife Deborah bought the company.
