Phillips History

Phillips Manufacturing Co. was founded in October of 1955 in Omaha, Nebraska by Mr. Phil Sokolof to meet the demands of a growing industry. Phillips original focus was perfecting the production and distribution of metal corner bead. Before long, Phillips had expanded into several variations of corner beads and trims. In 1969, Phillips built a new facility in Omaha, Nebraska to increase production space. Business was booming and another facility was added in Omaha in 1973.

On November 11, 1992, Mr. George Kubat took ownership of Phillips Manufacturing Co. and led the company to many successes. Mr. Kubat brought his expansive business knowledge to Phillips. Before Phillips, he was a 25-year CPA tax partner of a national accounting firm among many other key leadership roles.

In 1997, Phillips added yet another facility in Omaha, Nebraska, as demand for Phillips products continued to grow. In 1998, Phillips purchased National Gypsum’s metals plant in Niles, Ohio, adding 185,000 square feet to Phillips operations.

In 2004, Phillips moved into a newly built 150,000 square foot corporate headquarters and manufacturing plant in Omaha, Nebraska. This facility consolidated three area locations into one and is located in the Historic Stockyards Industrial Park in Omaha. Additionally in 2004, Phillips opened a 14,000 square foot distribution warehouse in Phoenix, Arizona.

In March of 2010, Phillips acquired the corner and transition cap assets of Pla-Cor®. This acquisition gave Phillips all rights, patents and injection molding equipment for Phillips to further service its drywall finishing customers. Also in the Spring of 2010, Phillips expanded its product offering introducing EDGEmaster® Roofing Metals.

In the Summer of 2012, Phillips acquired the assets of Steel Drum Industries in Tampa, FL. Phillips’ latest acquisition occurred in the Summer of 2013, in order to better serve markets in the Southeast and Southern US and the growing wet wall market, Phillips acquired a facility in Umatilla, FL.
