Will-Burt’s 100th Anniversary Celebration
The Will-Burt Company’s history can be traced back to 1894 when the Cope brothers opened a general repair shop. Soon after they purchased a patent for drilling equipment then grew the business to the point where they took on partner William Tschantz. “Will” Tschantz and Burton “Burt” Cope began doing business as The Will-Burt Company in 1916.
The Will-Burt Company was incorporated in Orrville, Ohio in 1918 and continues to call Orrville home to this day.
