Gaylord | About Us

Built on a Tradition of Quality, Innovation & Expertise

About Gaylord Bros.

The year of 1896 found Syracuse, New York effervescing with the spirit of industrial innovation, while brothers Willis and Henry Gaylord toiled away side by side in a state of stagnation at the local savings bank. Innovation and personal success seemed a far-off notion to the brothers as they tediously struggled to repair torn currency with sharp straight pins. In pursuit of the local spirit of innovation, the two decided to remedy the straight pin situation with an innovation of their very own — a simple yet effective gummed mending tissue...

Gaylord Bros. was founded on essential values that we continually strive to uphold today. It is in these values that our outstanding tradition of trust is born. Trust in the quality of our products, trust in our innovative solutions and trust in our years of expertise.

When you talk Gaylord listens, forging lasting relationships with the institutions we serve so we can evolve alongside them. In 1897, when a librarian wrote to Gaylord Brothers requesting a stronger alternative to our mending tissue, the brothers set out to create the perfect mending cloth for library applications. To this day, every time you ask a question or voice a concern we not only address the problem, but also consider how to change our products to better meet your needs.

In 1930 we invented the Model C Book Charger, forever transforming the face of library circulation. Twenty-five years ago, you asked for products that would better preserve your collections. We answered with our extensive line of Archival Solutions. Now, as we anticipate the future, we look forward to meeting a global demand for products that focus on the community and the preservation of our environment. By developing sustainable products that meet our green values and creating spaces that promote community involvement, we at Gaylord Bros. will continue to greet the future with enthusiastic innovation.

Gaylord works hard to support you with people who are experts in their field, from the hands that craft your products to the friendly voices on the other end of the phone. In 2005, we moved into a new home in North Syracuse, New York. We brought with us employees who've been with Gaylord for decades and added a few new faces to help us keep a fresh perspective: the one thing we all have in common is our dedication to remaining Your Trusted Source.
