Since 1968, Franke’s has built a reputation of excellence based on dependable service and long-term customer satisfaction. Meeting the needs of our associates, customers, suppliers and community has been a primary conduit for building strong relationships. These relationships have become the foundation of our business and continue to be the reason for our continued success.
Franke’s Wood Products, LLC, founded by President and CEO Bill Franke, has been serving local industry with packaging products and services for over 45 years. In 1968, as a two-man operation in a 1000 square foot building, Bill began supplying the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company with packaging products for their conveyor belting. By 1996, Franke’s had outgrown their facility on N. Main Street and purchased the former Siemens manufacturing facility on Collins Avenue. Today, Franke’s Wood Products, LLC has in excess of 130,000 square feet at two locations. They supply major industry throughout the greater Ohio area and market their conveyor belt packaging products worldwide. Bill was later joined in the business by his wife Judy and their three children, Chris, Kevin and Michelle.
