Our History

On April 1, 1950, George T. Sanders and his wife Pauline opened up a small company to supply sheet metal and other material to heating contractors in Denver, Colorado. The business opened at 1111 Stout Street in downtown Denver. In 1952 the Company outgrew its original location and moved to 7821 West Colfax Avenue in Lakewood. Read more.

The Future

The George T. Sanders Company has not always looked the same over the years. The Company has changed locations and changed the type of inventory it stocked. Vendors, some of them very substantial in size, are no longer in business. Many of the valuable employees that have made the Company great have come and gone. Some of the customers we have served have gone in and out of business. Yet, in learning from the past, we believe that there are things of permanence that make our Company special.
