Cincinnati, OH-based fabricator Sims-Lohman has been in business since the company was locally founded in 1971 under a different name. Years later, in 1998 and in an effort toward expansion, the Steinman family, who remains the owner today, bought Moellering Industries. They also purchased Sims-Lohman, a design-oriented cabinet company, and adopted the name. Following this acquisition, two granite fabrication companies located in Cincinnati, OH, and Columbus, OH, were acquired in 2006 and 2007, thereby entering the company into the granite sector. Sims-Lohman, which distributes kitchen cabinets and fabricates granite, quartz surfacing, laminate, cultured marble and solid surface countertops, currently has eight locations in Ohio, three in Indiana, three in Kentucky, one in Pennsylvania, and its latest acquisitions in Huntsville, AL, Nashville and Knoxville, TN.
The business is geared toward selling to professionals, custom and production residential builders, remodelers, designers and architects. Its principal markets are Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Tennessee and Alabama, and the company also serves home center retail stores, such as The Home Depot and Lowes, in some areas.
