Learn About This Industry Legend


Fritz von Langsdorff introduced Ed to Wolfgang Dürr and his father in law in the mid-eighties, as potential investors. The Dürrs owned one of the largest construction companies in Germany and helped Ed raise the capital he needed to build bigger plants with board machines. Ed quickly developed a close friendship with Wolfgang Dürr.

In 1985, a Mason machine was purchased and installed in Georgetown with the help of the Dürrs. This was a big change for Unilock. No longer was production being measured by stones, this new plant was manufacturing over 40 square feet a minute!

Ed’s vision of expanding around the Great Lakes, inspired the Dürrs to become silent partners in a new company that would build a plant in Chicago. It was the beginning of a whirlwind decade of building plants in Michigan and New York, followed by Ohio and eventually Boston.

Without the trust and partnership of the Dürrs, Unilock may not have been able to build new plants quickly enough to become the force in the industry that we are today.
