In 1983 Tri-State Fabricators, Inc., was started by Jay Richard (Dick) Vogt and his three sons Rick, Jeff, and Chris with one overarching goal in mind; to create a metal fabrication company that profoundly cared about creating long-term partnerships with its customers, employees, suppliers, and community.
From its humble beginnings in an old milk factory in Madisonville, Ohio; the family business grew thanks to the sheer hard work, customer-focus, and business-growth over personal-profit mentality. After just a few years the business out-grew this factory and they were forced to relocate to a much larger site in Cincinnati, Ohio.
The paint was barely dry on the new facility before word spread about their unmatched quality and craftsmanship, quick turn-around times, and fair pricing. Before long the Vogt family found themselves flooded with work but yet again out of space. This time they vowed to pick a site that could grow with the needs of their customers.
