GVH DISTRIBUTION: About Us
Gage Van Horn & Associates, Inc. was founded by Gage Van Horn in 1949 in Pecos, Texas. Gage Van Horn’s focus at the time was business forms, business labels, filing supplies and filing equipment. Later, in 1963 Mr. Van Horn’s son-in-law Charles “Buddy” Furgerson came to work for Gage Van Horn as a salesperson in Lubbock, Texas. It was then in 1975 that the home office was moved from Odessa to Lubbock, Texas and Buddy Furgerson became the General Manager. Since 1983, Beth and Buddy Furgerson have been the owners and the vision behind Gage Van Horn & Associates. Gage Van Horn & Associates has expanded with offices in Dallas, San Angelo, Amarillo, Midland/Odessa and Lubbock Texas. As a forward thinker, Buddy wanted to continue to grow the business and diversify. In 1997 Buddy continued the tradition of hiring family and hired his son-in-law Joe Schmidt as Gage Van Horn’s Sales Manager and he eventually became the president and managing partner of all the companies. Over the last several years GVH has become one of the fastest growing independent distributors in the country by securing national, regional and local customers.
GVH/Millennium Distribution, Ltd. was formed in 2003 as a result of a partnership between two businesses with common goals and objectives. Buddy Furgerson and Joe Schmidt, the managing partners, secured the business of United Supermarkets based in Lubbock, TX. Today GVH and Millennium are no longer partners but do engage in friendly business. GVH continues to distribute all of the labels, packaging, and supplies to their 50 stores. GVH Distribution, the first of its kind in the country with an on an online ordering system and cross dock program, became a huge success.
