From Flower Shop to Factory
Jacobsen Industries started in 1946 as Jacobson Steel Rule Dies.
Nearly 70 years ago, Frank Jacobson, our founder, started Jacobsen Steel Rule Dies, after serving in World War II. Today, we still continue to manufacture steel rule dies. Now however, we ship all over the country, and utilize the latest advancements in accuracy and quality.
Over the course of the years, the shop grew from a small one man shop to what it is today, a multi-faceted converter working in nearly 50,000 square feet of manufacturing space. Yes, we’ve come a long way from the old flower shop that Frank and his son Lee used to work out of.
Success in business is dependent on several factors, among them, a mix of product, planning, a little luck, and, above all, people. People who can work together as a harmonious unit. A family that truly cares about what they do.
Frank Jacobson, our founder, would not recognize much of the product we produce today. However, he would still feel at home in the tooling department, and certainly appreciate the friendly and quick service that he established many years ago.
The customer must be satisfied at whatever cost.
These are the values and high standards that he held and has passed on to us.
Today, Lee Jacobsen, Karen Jacobsen, Tom Chaney, and the rest of the Jacobsen team, work hard to make sure we never lose those values, no matter how big we get.
