Our History of Service
Our family owned business has small town values. We believe in providing great customer service as the cornerstone of our business.
The Schaibley Company was established in the 1950’s by the Schaibley Brothers as the family business. Operating with just two men, the brothers would go on the road and sell their hardware and grease guns at local fairs and Vaudville shows. After 20 successful years the brothers were ready to retire. Schaibley Company was sold and split into two, with Mr. Roller from Bowling Green purchasing the Ohio-Michigan territory and Mr. Nausbum from Frankfort, Indiana acquiring the Indiana-Illinois territory.
In 1995, Tim Baden purchased Mr. Roller’s half (acquiring the Ohio-Michigan territory). In 1998, he bought out Mr. Nausbum (Indiana and Illinois territory). The transaction restored the 4 state area and returned Schaibley Company to its original state under family ownership. After much thought, Tim decided it was best to retain the Brothers’ name for the company because of its notoriety and history.
Owners Tim and Cindy Baden, have strong backgrounds and working knowledge of the Farming and Automotive Industry. We strive to live up to the name the Schaibley Company has built over the past 60 plus years.
The company had humble beginnings in Continental, Ohio, starting in a 1,200 square foot pole barn. In 2006, a new 6,000 square foot warehouse was built in order to serve our dealers with a wider variety of inventory. We currently are in that facility and growing daily with our e-commerce site opening up our market area worldwide, requiring a new 9,500 square foot building to be purchased in 2021 to help store overflowing product.
Our values come from historic business culture where a handshake means more than a piece of paper and a man’s word is everything.
Our family-owned company holds several beliefs that keep our customers coming back. We still believe in that personal feeling that comes with face to face business. We believe in providing simple, honest, straightforward service. We believe integrity should shine through every aspect of our structure. We believe these things should apply even when you order online.
- We believe in offering the best prices available
- We believe in treating every customer fairly
- We believe in treating every sale the same whether small or large
