Our Story

It all started in 1887, with the strong desire for a home brewed cup of coffee. While working in his father's hardware store, John M. Waddell fashioned an improved box grinder that allowed you to use one hand to turn the handle, instead of two, which was often cumbersome. This became Waddell's first product manufactured in his father's two-story grain elevator in Greenfield, Ohio.

Driven by problem solving, John moved from coffee grinders to calculators, cigar cases, post office fixtures, and finally to display cases. Just before Waddell's hundred year anniversary the business was sold from the Waddell family to the Leasure family, founders of Ghent Manufacturing.

While the product has changed, our story hasn't. We're a company who is driven by innovation and appreciates the details and fine craftsmanship because that's the only way we know.
