Steves & Sons Inc. and Crest Doors Inc. are merging, with the interior and exterior door manufacturing businesses to operate as one company moving forward. Both are owned by the Steves family, with operations based San Antonio, Texas.

To be operated as Steves & Sons, the newly-combined company will continue to market products under the Steves and the Crest brand names. “During these challenging times, it is more important than ever for our two companies to focus on delivering quality products and a commitment to service with each and every customer transaction,” says Sam Bell Steves II, president of Steves & Sons. “Through the combination of Steves & Sons and Crest Doors we will take advantage of an established common sales structure.”

“Additionally, we will utilize our operating synergies to continue to provide excellent service and reliability to our customers,” adds Edward Steves, CEO.  Through this partnership, Steves & Sons will offer a full range of interior, exterior metal clad and exterior prime fiberglass composite doors from a single source. It will also leverage the merger to provide customers with combined shipping and freight options, shorter lead times and improved service, officials explain.

Dan Malicki, who has 32 years of industry experience, is joining newly-combined operation to direct the exterior business under the Crest brand.
