Our Story

Innovation Since the Beginning


Samsill Corporation celebrates seventy years of business on April 1, 2023, but the history of the company traces back to a cornfield south of Seymour, Texas, in 1941. It was officially formed as the dream of two young brothers. Cecil and Tirey Samsill, two of twenty-three children, decided “there must be a better way to make a living” while working the fields one hot summer day, and made a solemn vow right then and there that when they grew up, they would go into business together.

Although neither knew what their dream would become that hot July day in 1941, eighty-three years later, the employees and their families, suppliers, and valued customers are grateful for their vision and commitment to success.

Samsill started as Samsill Brothers Plastic Company; the first products were folded and sewn by hand and included shop cardholders, menu covers and protectors of all sizes. Over the years, the company evolved to Samsill Corporation and expanded its product offerings. Today, Samsill is the only mass manufacturer of ring binders in the United States. Samsill is regarded for quality and innovative office organization solutions through a wide product selection including binders, padfolios, professional business accessories and much more.
