IT’S ALL IN THE Family
The brother’s separation would only last a few years until they found themselves together again starting their construction careers at Binswanger Glass Company of Memphis, Tennessee. Throughout the late 1950s, they would hone their skills in the glazing industry together, building the foundations of knowledge needed to begin Tull Brothers. Over the course of those years working away from Memphis, they began to see opportunities in rural communities where they work. One such area was northeast Mississippi, where having a full-service glass shop had the potential to serve the community well. After much consideration, soul searching and support from their wives, Joyce and Barbara, Ray and Sam took the monumental step of starting Tull Brothers Glass Co., Inc. in Corinth, Mississippi in 1962.
Building on previous successes, Tull Brothers embarked again upon expansion beginning in the early 2000s. Operations started in Jackson, Tennessee in 2001 and later in Tupelo, Mississippi in 2004. As these branches developed and had a well-established presence in their markets, Tull Brothers was once again looking to expand. An opportunity in 2012 would allow Tull Brothers to acquire Commercial Door & Hardware of Meridian, Mississippi, followed by Thrasher Architectural Hardware of Jackson, Mississippi in 2014. These acquisitions in conjunction with Tull’s extended network of branch offices have allowed Tull to serve its customers as a Premier Division 8 Sub-Contractor and Material Supplier in the Southeast U.S. and the Caribbean.
