DeVore & Sons Inc. Bible Publishers, is a specialist publisher of Catholic and Protestant Bibles.
The company was started in 1948 by Floyd DeVore, when he purchased the Chicago-based Bible publisher John A Hertel. In 1968, DeVore relocated to Wichita where it has been located ever since. The company is a family owned business, now run by Ross DeVore. Ross DeVore is the fourth generation of the DeVore family to lead the company.
The company publishes and markets Bibles using two brands: Heirloom Bible Publishers and Fireside Catholic Publishing.
Its customers are primarily institutional, such as Catholic churches, schools, fraternal lodges and labor unions.
"Catholic churches and schools account for a large part of the company's business" DeVore says.
