About Us


old factoryHistory/Location

Webb-Stiles Company has experienced steady growth since its establishment in 1956. The original and now corporate headquarters are located in Valley City, Ohio (an hour southwest of Cleveland). Our southern division was established in 1977 and is located in Gadsden, Alabama (about an hour Northeast of Birmingham).

Company History

In 1956, Joe Webb and Don Stiles began the partnership that would become the Webb-Stiles Company. As sales representatives for stock conveyor equipment they noticed a need for custom conveyors and material handling devices. To fill this void they began engineering special custom equipment and having it built for them.

The rapidly growing partnership was incorporated into the Webb-Stiles Company in 1959. They acquired a 3200 square foot building in 1963, located in the Cleveland Flats. There they committed themselves to fabrication and manufacturing. By 1967, the offices and manufacturing facilities had tripled in size. Because of limited availability of expansion space, they were compelled to look to the future.

In 1968, Webb-Stiles acquired a 14 acre site in a new industrial park located in Valley City. In 1969, a brand new 67,000 square foot facility was built. The new plant was equipped with the latest in manufacturing and fabrication equipment. The new plant and equipments allowed for greater productivity and innovative engineering and permitted continued growth and entry into many new markets.

Throughout the seventies, the growth of Webb-Stiles Company was phenomenal, culminating in the expansion of the Valley City facilities with added plant capacity and new engineering offices. Webb-Stiles was almost a completely self-sufficient manufacturing company within the capacity of the 140,000 square foot plant. New equipment, personnel, and innovation in product is a continuing Webb-Stiles feature. old factory


Webb-Stiles penetration into the sunbelt market was made in 1977 with the formation of the Southern Subsidiary Webb-Stiles of Alabama in Gadsden. The 69,000 square foot facility is located on a 32 acre site. The expansion of Webb-Stiles allowed for increased expansion of the marketing area and allowed for our entry into the world market.
