Description of business: Five Marsh brothers set out with the basic business principles of offering quality products, innovation and the desire to be a company for which people wanted to work, to start what is now known as Marsh Industries, Inc. With the beginnings as a lumber company in 1914, the Marsh family has proven time and time again how to innovate and evolve their businesses as markets change. From lumber materials to various hardwood products including cold air floor registers, flooring and eventually a large millwork operation, the Marshes began a second business known as Marsh Wall Products, a company later sold and currently doing business as Marlite, a company still located in Tuscarawas County, Ohio.
During these activities, an opportunity presented itself to learn the chalkboard business; and, shortly thereafter the Marsh Chalkboard Company was launched. From chalk lapboards to computer lap tops, Marsh's visual display boards are a highly sought brand among many manufacturers within their industry. Marsh's most recent innovation, in partnership with DYMO Mimio, is Marsh Integro, a new and exciting interactive whiteboard for today's classrooms.
From lumber to the newest generation of interactive whiteboard technology in education classrooms throughout the US, Marsh continues to lead the way.
