Our History

Tom Alexander & Gene Bebout formed Alexander & Bebout, Inc. in March 1965, joined immediately by Sylvia Alexander as office manager. The business was formed primarily to build farm silos and structures, but quickly graduated to fertilizer plants and larger general construction projects. Alexander & Bebout, Inc. is located in Van Wert in Northwest Ohio and employs over sixty full time employees concentrating their skills in the commercial and industrial fields.

Almost from the beginning the company was exceptionally skilled in Design/Build construction. In 1970 Alexander & Bebout, Inc. associated itself with Butler Manufacturing and continues today as an award winning Butler Career Builder. The strength of this relationship and the use of pre-engineered buildings has allowed Alexander & Bebout, Inc. to service the needs of our clients wherever they arise. Although Alexander & Bebout, Inc. services primarily Northwest Ohio and Northeast Indiana regions; it has also provided buildings and projects in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, South Carolina, and New York.

While we are proud of our many awards, we are most proud of our staff. The Alexander & Bebout team recognizes and is committed to quality, integrity, reliability, and honesty. With an outstanding management team and outstanding seasoned skilled craftsmen, Alexander & Bebout, Inc. has grown continually for more than 50 years. Over 71% of our employees have been with the company for over ten years.

Whatever your needs….. Whatever your budget…. Call on us …. We Can Help!
