In 1886, J. I. Holcomb and J. Fred Hoke met in Sullivan, Indiana. They acquired a Lafayette, Indiana company, in 1897, which manufactured fiber brushes for industrial and domestic use. Thus, the partnership of Holcomb & Hoke was formed.

FolDoor® accordion partitions and operable walls were introduced in 1950 and 1961, respectively, and have been in continuous production ever since.

The men and women of Holcomb & Hoke maintain the founding partners’ spirit of innovation, commitment to excellence, and responsiveness to customers that have permitted the company to grow and prosper for a century and more.
