Ed Schory & Son was founded in 1937, in Canton, Ohio. The primary focus of the business was the supply of coal as fuel for both residential and industrial consumption. To augment the seasonality of coal distribution, business aims were directed to the warmer weather construction industry. during the early 1950’s, as coal usage decreased in favor of other energy sources, the business focus of Ed Schory & Son became entirely directed to the distribution and supply of masonry building materials.
