Erco has been serving commercial customers and homeowners alike since being founded in 1963 by Rick and Esther Sykora. The company originally gained fame as a supplier/installer of suspended ceiling systems, but over the years expanded into supplying and installing window treatments, restroom partitions, ADA accessories, commercial flooring and Division 10 specialties.
Starting from a small garage in Glassboro, New Jersey, the company has grown to four locations. Rick and Esther still run the day-to-day operations at the company's Glassboro, New Jersey location. Rick and Esther's oldest son, Greg, runs the Erco location in Somers Point, New Jersey, while the youngest of their three children, Stanley runs Erco offices in Elsmere and Dover, Delaware. Their middle child, Lisa, runs payroll and human resources for all of the firms. Now Rick and Esther's grandchildren are coming of age and working out in the field learning about the business "from the ground up."
Despite the fact Erco has grown into a mid-sized corporation over the years, the Sykora family has never forgotten the company's family-owned roots. This allows Erco to give customers and employees all the personal service and attention of a family-run operation, while having all the benefits, knowledge and resources available to a medium-sized company.
Erco is a regional leader in the interior construction industry and maintains strong, direct-buy relationships with industry leaders in the ceilings, blinds and Division 10 industries, such as Armstrong, USG, Chicago Metallic, Bobrick, Hadrian, Bali-Graber and Hunter Douglas.
Erco was the first company to partner with as part of their Certified Recycling Program and continues to be at the forefront of green initiatives in our industry as a member of the US Green Building Council.
Today, Erco has completed over 175,000 jobs for services contractors, all levels of the government and education, developers, homeowners, designers, and tomorrow, hopefully you!
