Upon the completion of the Erie Canal in 1825, Buffalo became the western end of the 524-mile waterway starting at New York City. With the increased commerce of the canal, the population boomed and Buffalo, New York was incorporated as a city in 1832. In 1870, David F. Williamson, a prominent local attorney, decided to start a business that would serve the needs of a growing legal community within Buffalo and its surrounding townships. Buffalo, circa 1900, was celebrating the dawn of a new century as they hosted the 1901 Pan-American Exposition. Being only 20 miles from the tremendous source of hydro-electric power of Niagara Falls, Buffalo introduced the wonders of electricity as its gift to the world.

Today, D.F. Williamson Co. Inc. honors Buffalo’s rich history by operating in the heart of Buffalo’s business district in one of Buffalo’s finest architectural jewels – the Ellicott Square Building. It is a fitting home for a business that values tradition and quality.

D.F. Williamson Co. has been in business since 1870 because we have proven to generations of customers that we stand for consistency, high quality, adaptable product lines, exceptional service, reasonable prices, timely delivery, and remain true to our core mission of serving the stationery and legal supply needs of Upstate New York. However, we realize the need to earn your trust each and every day.

For that reason, we operate our business based on the following principle:

                    “Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed.
                     Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle or it will starve.
                    It doesn’t matter whether you’re a gazelle or a lion, when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.”
