Throughout our more than 100-year history, The Garland Company, Inc. has continually developed unique product and service offerings that have raised the bar of performance while exceeding the individual needs of customers throughout the world.
Garland's storied history began in 1895 when Jacob B. Wise purchased the Garland Company, Inc., known then as the Garland Refining Company, for $100 with money he borrowed from his brother, Samuel. Throughout the last century, Garland has become a leader in the commercial roofing industry by providing high-performance, innovative waterproofing solutions engineered for long-term performance. We have succeeded by remaining dedicated to our customers and continually developing innovative solutions to meet the ever-changing needs of a demanding global market.
Garland is a living legacy of industry "firsts" in products and services with numerous award-winning innovations, including some of the industry's most exciting sustainable solutions. We were among the first roofing companies in North America to embrace green technologies, and remain at the forefront of sustainable solutions through a combination of product research and development. The technologies we develop and manufacture, the raw materials we purchase, the processes we use, the delivery methods we offer, and the services we provide are driven by a simple philosophy: listen to what today's customers need, anticipate what tomorrow's customers will want.
