Commercial Casework was established on May 1, 1976, and was incorporated on August 4th of the same year. It was founded by four brothers from a woodworking family; Ralph, John, Bill and Tom Palmer. It is now owned by Bill (an original founding member) along with Nick, Eric, Lance, and ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). ESOP owns 83% of Commercial Casework Inc.

In the early years Commercial Casework Inc. specialized in retail fixtures, especially for jewelry stores. The banking industry boomed during that time period and Commercial Casework Inc. jumped in to fill the need.
