Pymer Plastering Keeps History Alive For Over 125 Years

Date: December 31, 2014

Pymer Plastering, has been a family run business for almost
130 years. It is currently owned and operated by Seth and Sherry Pymer.  Pymer Plastering began in 1886 by Seth’s
great grandfather Seth, when he moved to Columbus from York, Pennsylvania,
prior to that the family were plasterers in England.  Seth’s father took over the business in 1971,
and after teaching high school math for ten years, Seth bought the business in
1987 that he had worked for as a teenager and in the summers. 

Pymer Plastering does mostly commercial and some high end
residential work on jobs.  They have
worked on many historic theaters and opera houses including Columbus’ own Southern
Theater.   They are one of the most experienced
companies in the country, and have found a true niche in historical renovations
as well as new specialty and custom plaster finishes.  Although located in Columbus, Ohio, they have
done work all over the country, including Hawaii.  “We leave behind a legacy of buildings.
Plaster is fire proof and mold resistant, only water and movement can destroy
it.”

Sherry and Seth enjoy being small business owners.  They appreciate the freedom of scheduling and
being able to rearrange things when needed. 
“There are many headaches, but there are more joys.”  They employ around 6-10 craftsmen who they
find through connections they have made in the industry and word-of-mouth.  They put a lot of time and energy into the
training of their employees, teaching many of them how to plaster from the
ground up, as it is becoming a lost art. 
Quality is a big emphasis of the business.

Pymer Plastering has been a member of NFIB for over 41
years.  Seth’s dad joined in 1973. He saw
it as a priority that small business owners have the opportunity to band
together and be heard.  Now Sherry is
very involved in NFIB as the chair of the SE Central Ohio Area Acton Council
and a consistent attendee of the quarterly NFIB/Ohio Leadership Council
meetings. 

“98% of all business is small business.  We are the backbone of communities, states,
and the country.  NFIB advocates for us
when we don’t have the time or power to do it on our own.  We alone are small, but together we are big,”
said Sherry Pymer.
