Duncan-Parnell Celebrates 75 Years

01.06.2021

Family-owned business reaches meaningful milestone

Not many businesses reach the 75-year mark, and even fewer family-owned businesses do. So, to say we’re honored to reach this milestone is a major understatement.

In 1946 Duncan-Parnell was founded by World War II vet, Charlie Duncan, as a blueprint and drafting supplier in Charlotte, NC. Over the past 75 years Duncan-Parnell has risen to become a trusted supplier to construction contractors, engineers, surveyors, architects and designers. The evolution of our business and ability to adapt and diversify is why we’ve been able to survive the trials and tribulations of the past 75 years. We’ve sustained ourselves through multiple recessions and we’re grateful to continue navigating the ever-changing landscape caused by a global pandemic.

Not only has Duncan-Parnell’s product and service offerings expanded over the years, but our team has too. Three generations later, our current President and CEO Mark Duncan continues to run Duncan-Parnell following the principals we were founded on and our team has grown to over 160 employees. We’ve also since expanded to 15 different branch locations, ranging all the way from Florida to Virginia!

Our growth over the past 75 years has allowed us to better reach and serve customers throughout the Southeast and we couldn’t be more honored to reach this milestone.
