History of Innovators

Entrepreneurial determination and resourcefulness drive American business. From computers to logistics to warehouse safety, innovators solve complex problems.

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 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. Dick’s 33 years of experience at BEW strengthens our customer relationships and confidence in his current role as sales director. Andrew and Celia Yeo purchased BEW from Dick in 2016. 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 expand its commitment to excellence with solid solutions.
