History of Innovators
Founder Glenn Foy started Best Equipment and Welding in his 800 square foot garage in 1983 as a one-man crew servicing dock equipment. Glenn offered customers innovative solutions for complex problems at a fair price by collaborating with them.
Best Equipment and Welding now operates from a 21,000 square foot headquarters in Indianapolis. When Glenn died, Dick Gilbert assumed sole ownership of BEW continuing the company legacy for innovative customer solutions with ‘best’ products, workmanship, and service. Andrew and Celia Yeo purchased BEW from Dick to become its new owners and Dick now operates as its Business Development Director to further support the company’s potential for continued growth. Andrew’s broad business background brings custom fabrication, finance, and purchasing expertise to BEW from large and small enterprises. Celia’s experience in HR, IT, and consulting add to BEW’s goals to further develop its commitment to excellence with solid solutions.
Since 1983, Best Equipment and Welding’s mission is solving problems…adding value. Two powerful divisions of loading dock equipment and custom steel fabrication that integrate perfectly to meet customer needs… from start to finish …for total customer satisfaction. It’s what sets us apart from the competition. It’ what we do Best.
