The Iroquois Door Company began in Buffalo in 1904 as a branch of the Cream City Sash & Door Company of Milwaukee.

It operated as distributors of wholesale building products. In 1920, the company acquired the Iroquois Millwork Company in Albany, which gave the company a manufacturing facility for windows, doors, millwork, cabinetry, etc.
