Buckeye Shapeform [ Buckeye Shapeform ]
Their company dates back to 1902, the year Teddy Roosevelt became the first American president to ride in an automobile; the U.S. paid France $40,000 for the rights to the Panama Canal; and Michigan beat Stanford in the first Rose Bowl game. That same year in Columbus, Ohio, E. C. Derby founded the Buckeye Stamping Company, and the origins of their company were firmly established. Back then they served many Ohio-based companies, delivering their products via horse-drawn wagons.
A few years later in 1910, they opened an operations plant in close proximity to their largest customer, Federal Glass, and started to produce parts in that new facility.
By 1943, the company had grown enough to attract investors. That’s when Floyd Bell, president of Bell Sound, purchased the Buckeye Stamping Company. they continued to produce parts for military equipment, small candles, and intercom-wired tow lines used for pilot communication during flight.
When the 1950s arrived, the Buckeye Stamping Company expanded to an 80,000-square-foot facility on Marion Road in Columbus. Ten years later, Bell founded F. W. Bell Inc. within the walls of the
Buckeye Stamping Company and manufactured voltage testing instruments, sensors, and gravity measuring equipment at that location. During that time, the company designed and manufactured instrument knobs and electronic enclosures using machinery and employees from the Buckeye Stamping Company.
In the early 1960s, the company began to sell instrument knobs, followed by the addition of enclosures toward the end of that decade.
In 1971, Bell founded Floyd Bell Associates under the Buckeye Stamping Company, and the company manufactured electronic audio alarm devices. That same year Bell’s son, Dave Bell, took over as president of the company. Dave Bell led the company until his death in 1986, at which time the vice president, Dick Osborne, took over until his retirement in 1998.
