BEGINNINGS. Dolan & Traynor traces its history back to August 1, 1948, when John Traynor came to Northern New Jersey as a factory salesman and later an independent representative for Speakman Company and Jay R. Smith Manufacturing Company
THE COMPANY IS BORN. In 1954, John’s close friend Bernie Dolan joined John J. Traynor Associates, and in 1965, after years of building the business together, the two men officially formed Dolan & Traynor, Inc. A handshake sealed their agreement, which still stands today through the second generation. From day one, they operated on a philosophy that had guided them from the beginning – the customer always comes first.
BUILDING ON SUCCESS. Dolan & Traynor continued to grow as other family members joined the company. In 1972, Dolan & Traynor became the exclusive area distributor of DuPont™ CORIAN®. Under the guidance of current President Timothy J. Traynor and Executive VIce-President B. Michael Dolan, the company extended its territory up the Hudson Valley into the Albany Capital District, added new product lines, and dramatically increased sales.
READY FOR THE FUTURE. Today, over 50 years after John Traynor and Bernie Dolan first went into business together, we take great pride in what our founding fathers accomplished, and what we have been able to build as we honor their traditions – a company that continues to serve and grow, as we eagerly prepare for the challenges that lie ahead.
