Family, Values, and Family Values
Unlike many of today's political and social pundits, Frank Ziegler was never the least bit confused about the meaning of family, values, or family values . Everyone who knew F.C. Ziegler would be quick to tell you that his life and his work were the very essence of these terms.
In order to understand the kind of business that F.C. Ziegler Company is, you need only understand the kind of man F.C. Ziegler was. Born in South Dakota in 1900, his family moved to Tulsa when he was very young. Reared in a traditional Catholic family in an overwhelmingly non-Catholic part of the country, he developed a strong sense of community with his fellow parishioners at St. Francis Xavier Parish.
In 1929, during the birth of the Great Depression, he started a jewelry manufacture and repair shop. During World War II, local priests asked if he would begin making chalices and other sacred vessels. Considering it his duty to the Church, he said yes. It also happened to be a unique business opportunity at a time when opportunities of any kind were becoming increasingly rare.
With this little bit of providence, F.C. Ziegler Co. grew steadily, adapting to the many changes in the Church and in society. By 1965, it was one of the country's leading manufactures of ecclesiastical metalware. After Vatican II, many businesses in the industry failed, for various reasons, but F.C Ziegler Co. persevered. In the 1970's, the company instituted a delivery service. Shortly thereafter, branch stores were opened in Wichita, Kansas and the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area. Today, more than 70 years later, F.C.Ziegler Co. is the country's most integrated supplier, manufacturer and distributor of products to satisfy the needs of church institutions.
"F.C." oversaw the company's growth right up until his death in the summer of 1993. Through great faith and simple values, he understood that any business that dealt exclusively with the Church could only survive -and thrive- by maintaining an uncommon degree of honesty and integrity. And it is those qualities which he instilled in the operators of today's F.C. Ziegler Co. his children and grandchildren.
Remaining true to the character of our beloved founder, we at F.C. Ziegler Co. continue to provide the kind of service and value that only a family-run business understands.

Sanctuary lamps, hymn boards and ciboria from Excelsis. Correlative appointments from Regal. Statuary from Demetz Studio.

Supply and Distribution
The most recent addition to the F.C. Ziegler family is a 7000-sq.-ft. warehouse at our Tulsa location, in which we keep an inventory of thousands of items. Staples such as candles, altar wine, hosts, and incense can be promptly supplied to you via our efficient delivery system. Same day shipping is available on most items in our catalog.
F.C. Ziegler always believed in building solid customer relationships instead of merely selling products. He insisted that our full line of candles always be delivered in good condition with customer satisfaction. This customer-service philosophy is the foundation of our distribution operation.
Our warehouse features a cooler specially designed to store raw palm during Lent. A special service to our customers, our cooler keeps palm fresh until it is ready to be stripped and bagged. We then ship your order before Palm Sunday, so it will arrive in perfect condition at your church in plenty of time before weekend services.
In addition to expanding our physical facilities, we recently added a number of top-of-the-line furnishings and supplies to our distribution network. In 1992, we were solicited by Stadelmaier of Nijmegen, Holland, to be the southwest's exclusive supplier of their chasubles and other liturgical apparel. We are also one of 15 U.S. companies chosen by Slabbinck Co. of Belgium to sell their "Master Collection" of vestments and paraments.
