What do you like about doing business in Ohio? Ohio is a great location because our facility is within 1000 miles of 80% of the U.S. population. This location also puts Staber Industries at the cross roads of inter-modal traffic for our international shipments. Columbus also has an outstanding availability of an educated, skilled, and qualified work force.
Description of business: Staber Industries has been family-owned and operated since 1976. Staber began re-manufacturing laundry equipment in 1976 from manufacturers such as Maytag, Whirlpool, GE, and Speed Queen. Based upon this experience, we were able to implement design improvements for a new type of clothes washer and have patented a unique tub design that can clean more effectively than circular tubs. Staber washers have been produced in Groveport, Ohio, since 1993. Most sales have been shipped factory-direct to the customer. Staber also has technologies for laser cutting, metal fabrication, vapor degreasing, and powder-coat painting.
Staber is the only U.S. manufacturer of an energy efficient top loading tumble action washer. Staber has been featured in publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Popular Science 'Best of What's New', Consumers Digest 'Best Buy Issue', Country Living, Countryside Magazine, Farm Show, Arrington's Bed & Breakfast, Appliance Service News, Columbus Monthly, and Home Power magazine.
In October of 2011 Staber Industries acquired Mastersports/Match Mate tennis and began production of tennis ball machines at our Groveport facility as an extension to our product line. With our manufacturing capacity this was an excellent move into the tennis industry.
