Our History


The history of The Marco Company began with two brothers, Darrell and David Cooper. The two shared a vision to build a company that would provide innovative merchandising solutions to the grocery industry. Together, with their wives and various family members, the Cooper brothers set out in 1984 to turn their dream into a reality.

Within four years, the company had already outgrown their original 5,000 square foot building in Fort Worth, Texas. With a growing staff of thirty-three employees they found it necessary to double their manufacturing space to keep up with the demand for their growing product line. Little did they know that the company they had founded with only five simple plastic products they had marketed to grocery stores, would one day be transformed into a global company that would serve a variety of general retailers as well as grocers worldwide.


For 30 years The Marco Company has provided the grocery industry with innovative and cost-effective merchandising products and is still family-owned and operated today. Marco now has over 1,000,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehouse space and proudly serves twenty-four of the top twenty-five grocery store chains in the U.S.

In recent years, Marco has forged new areas of growth by responding to both client and industry-wide needs. Expanding the product line has allowed the company to deliver solutions to major general merchandise retailers as well. Marco has increasingly become known as the one-stop shop for displays, millwork, installation and case refurbishment. Within the last year, the company has also expanded its product offering to include cart corrals and asset protection solutions that satisfy the sales floor, back room and exterior needs of virtually every retailer.
