Centimark Timeline

CentiMark was founded

images/dunlaps2.jpg
On April 19th, 1968, Edward B. Dunlap established a janitorial supply business in the basement of his home with $1,000 and one associate. He quickly realized that his customers also needed contractor services for their roofs and floors. That's when a janitorial supply company grew into a full-service commercial roofing and flooring contractor.

EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer or rubber)

As an entrepreneur, Ed Dunlap embraced new ideas to develop and grow the business. His willingness to utilize a new roofing membrane material called EPDM on the roofs in the 1970s became a game-changer for the growing company. In 1978, Steve Hecht sold the first EPDM [rubber] roofing job at St.Mary's High School, St.Mary's, PA.

Tim Dunlap appointed President

images/tim-on-the-roof-timeline.png
Tim Dunlap has been the President of CentiMark since January 1, 2003 and the CEO of CentiMark since February 2021. Tim’s youth and professional life paralleled the growth of CentiMark after his Dad founded the company in 1968 when he was eight years old. A young Tim Dunlap spent every weekend at his Dad’s side being educated in the business. He swept the warehouse, labeled cans for flooring products and, eventually, went on sales calls with his Dad. Father and son would have Saturday lunches together and discuss all the trials and tribulations of starting and growing a business.
