Terry-Durin was founded and incorporated in the state of Iowa in 1908 by Mr. J.B. Terry. In 1910, Mr. A.E. Durin bought stock in the Company and became Mr. Terry’s business partner. In the photograph below, you can see Alfred Durin (far left) and J. B. Terry (third from the left) in the early days. The Durin family bought Mr. Terry’s interest in the business in the early 1950’s and has subsequently owned and operated the business. The Company is located at 409 Seventh Avenue SE in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, which serves as a central location for the Company’s operations. The Company originally had two divisions, small appliance and electrical supplies.
