The legacy of Morton Buildings, Inc. consists of a long history of innovation. The roots of the company go back to 1903, when Interlocking Fence Company was formed by John Getz, Sr., who was succeeded by his son Joe A. Getz. Under the guidance of Joe A. Getz and John Getz, Sr., a single hardware store located in Morton, Illinois was transformed into a fence manufacturing company. The early founders of the company were able to capitalize on changes that were taking place in the heartland of America. A novel invention that facilitated the manufacturing of woven wire gave the young company the highest quality product to offer their growing customer base. The business soon grew into a small mail order business and maintained 14 retail stores in the State of Illinois to service the ever more sophisticated farming industry. In the late 1940s, Henry A. Getz, at the age of 28, while working for his father as a sales consultant, had the foresight to add simple farm buildings to the business, which set the foundation of the company we know today as Morton Buildings. In 2017, after over 113 years as a family owned company, Morton Buildings transitioned to 100% employee ownership. From the construction crews to the sales consultants, to the plant employees, no matter who a customer interacts with, they can rest assured they’re speaking with a proud owner of the company who wants to make sure that the customer is completely satisfied and happy.
