Staring with a desk, a drafting table, a car and a dream, Dick Baker began the entrepreneurial journey which led to Rebsco, Inc. in April 1965. A farm kid from Hollansburg, Ohio, Dick had always wanted to have his own business and work with the agricultural industry.
In 1967, property was purchased and a small shop was built at the current location. In 1991, Dick seized a natural opportunity for growth. Greenville Manufacturing, which for years had been the in-house fabrication shop for American Aggregates, was closing. Purchasing some of the equipment, then hiring a few members of the experienced staff, Dick designed and built our current facility and Rebsco added the aggregate and asphalt industry to its customer base of feed mills, grain elevators, and pet food facilities. We added a small will call business so local farmers and businesses could buy steel or have smaller fabrication projects completed. In 2010, the PlatePro Extreme was a welcome addition, adding to our shop capabilities and efficiencies.
In 1993, Rebsco moved from drafting tables and paper to computers and AutoCAD, creating greater efficiencies in the Design and Engineering Department. Today, Rebsco, Inc. has 2D and 3D capabilities, a centralized electronic project filing system and an extensive electronic library for use in developing flow charts, designs and detailing of capital improvement and turn key projects.
In 1996, Tyeis L. Baker-Baumann, Dick's daughter came back to Greenville, joining the business and eventually taking on the responsibilities of President.
Forty-plus years later Rebsco, Inc. continues its commitment to our customers through a daily commitment to quality professional service delivered with integrity and respect for you, our partners for the future.
