How did the Gunderson Family Companies start?

The Gunderson Family Companies began as a single-location dry cleaner in Menasha, Wisconsin in 1952. The company was established by Douglas E. Gunderson and is now owned by his son, Gary Gunderson. Since that time, Gunderson has grown and expanded into several textile industries, while remaining a local and family-owned business that supports the communities in which we live and work. The company continues to grow as the it enters into the 3rd Generation. With over 250 employees, Gunderson Family Companies is proud to be a well known and sustainable business in the community.
