Spohn Associates is a blend between the traditional Manufacture’s Rep Agency, and a Specialty Contractor. How we operate and why we exist is really quite simple: quality manufacturers located in remote corners of the world need sales representation in distant markets. Likewise, architectural design communities and building contractors need knowledge of, and access to, the industry’s best products. Although the dynamic is relatively simple, to excel at it requires superior levels of service, trust and accountability. Spohn covers three states with an extensive array of architectural products, eight sales associates and wall-to-wall project management of each order, Spohn Associates, Inc. has always been fueled by the power of human relationships.

We are inspired when architects are empowered to design; when manufacturers dare to innovate; and when contractors recognize the value of quality and service. Mostly, we are inspired by opportunities to serve the commercial construction industry and to better our communities in the process.

Spohn specializes in:

  • Decorative Railing and Ornamental Metals
  • Canopies, Walkways and Shelters
  • Architectural Wall Panel Systems
  • Screenwalls, Louvers and Solar Control Skylights, Windows and Daylighting ​
  • Structural Glass / Point Supported Walls
