WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT DOING BUSINESS IN OHIO?
Doing business in Ohio is great because of its central location for shipping to a national customer base. My competitors on the east and west coasts both envy our ability to serve the majority of the country more quickly and less expensively than they can.
DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS:
In 1899, the Haas-Jordan Company was founded as the Hull Brothers Umbrella Manufacturing Company in Norwalk. The brothers moved their fledging company to Toledo in 1903. By 1910, they had built a new factory to house the growing business and by the 1920’s the company had climbed to the top 10 in umbrella production by using innovative ideas that still drive the company today. With the assistance of golf legend, Byron Nelson, Haas-Jordan designed the first American style golf umbrella. Haas-Jordan has maintained its’ roots in the Toledo area for over 100 years and continues to strive in the umbrella industry. The company has managed to stay on top of the competition by using creative ideas such as fully customizable umbrellas and outstanding quality. Over the years, Haas-Jordan has become a premier name in the industry while becoming one of the Toledo area’s longest lasting companies. In 2012, Haas-Jordan moved to a Toledo suburb for an expanded warehouse and production capacity. In 2014, Todd Blackmar, a retired major in the U.S. Marine Corps, purchased the company under TMB Enterprises LLC and continues to run the company with the same innovation, impeccable quality, customer service, and outstanding value that the Haas- Jordan Company earned in over 115 years of business. In 2015, Haas-Jordan officially became a Veteran Owned Small Business thanks to Todd’s service in the U.S. Marine Corps.
