Owners Bill and Jackie Blasdel established the company in 1982 as an expansion of the WB Panel Company, originally founded in 1974, along with the assets from Industrial Ovens (Dial-O-Temp) and Ceramic Oven companies. Over the course of the last three decades, they have consistently invested in the technology, equipment and people to bring only the best to their customers each and every day. Capital investments have included a new building and two additional expansions, bringing their Indiana facility to 30,000 square feet. The additional space has allowed Blasdel to support their growing infrared oven business and add a secondary operation of manufacturing control panels for an automated packaging company. Daughter , Beth Blasdel, a Purdue Engineering graduate, is Plant Manager of the business and is in charge of day to day operations. Bill is at the helm of the organization as President and is in charge of sales and engineering. Jackie serves as CEO and continues to play a key role in the strategic growth plan for the company.
Not only are the Blasdels vested in the success of their business, employees and clients, but their community as well. Often sharing their time and talents within their community and serving in leadership roles. They were honored with a Greensburg/Decatur County Chamber of Commerce Community Service Award in 2010, the county’s highest award. Additionally, William Blasdel is a previous Sagamore of the Wabash recipient and Jacqueline Blasdel a Distinguished Hoosier Award recipient.
Ever humble and brimming with both Hoosier and USA pride, neither boosts of their great accomplishments, but quietly go about serving those around them and immersing themselves in the day to day operations of their company, their valued clients’ needs and the needs of their community, because it’s just who they are, and they wouldn’t have it any other way.
