With the holiday season in full swing, family is on most everyone’s minds. That’s certainly true for us here at Ohio Valley Manufacturing, but then again as a family business, it tends to be the case year-round. One of our highlights of 2012 was the Mansfield News Journal’s coverage of the company. Brothers Jeff, John, and Steven are carrying the tradition of their father, Mike, and grandfather, Mick, into a third generation of success and service. The challenges and great rewards of running a business together have brought a close family even closer.

What are some of the benefits of running a family-owned business together? For starters, we’re all on the same page as far as hard work and the drive to serve our customers well, having had these values instilled from a young age. Like any business (and like any family), there are certainly disagreements and differences of opinion regarding the details. Our overall vision, however, has always and will continue to remain the same: provide top quality heavy gauge stamping services with the same respect for our extended family of customers that we have for each other. We strive to share the examples and lessons that we learned to keep the tradition strong!
