The Kwik-Wall story began in 1929 as Capitol Wood Works, a millwork company located in Springfield, Illinois, founded by Ray Neisewander. As Capitol Wood Works’ business grew, it expanded into the building materials industry when in 1944, Ray Neisewander along with partner Bill Norberg founded Raynor Garage Door Company.
In 1961, responding to the emerging demand by the Hospitality industry for acoustically-rated operable walls to divide meeting space, the business expanded again with the founding of Kwik-Wall Company. Decades of growth and innovation followed with Kwik-Wall earning a secure position in the market.
In 2006, Kwik-Wall was purchased by Kwik-Wall’s then Controller, Mike Hoyle, who had the vision and the dedication to expand on Kwik-Wall’s legacy and lead Kwik-Wall into the future. Now, with more than 60 years of strategic and focused effort, Kwik-Wall has become a respected global leader in performance-proven movable wall systems for the commercial building specialties industry.
Built on a solid foundation of best-in-class product quality, innovation and responsive customer service, the Kwik-Wall promise is to work tirelessly every day to earn the trust of the design/build community and become their preferred solutions provider, helping transform spaces into opportunity, and vision into reality.
