Steve Staub and his sister Sandy Keplinger started the company in April of 1997 with the help of their father and mentor, the late Ben Staub, Sr. For over twenty years the company has operated under the simple motto of “Do the right thing”. It’s much more than a saying at Staub Manufacturing Solutions, it’s part of our DNA. It’s part of what Ben Staub, Sr. taught us as children and its part of what he taught us as business people. Proud to be the 3rd generation in the manufacturing industry and the 5th generation in Dayton, Ohio, we strive to build on our family reputation by getting the job done correctly, on time and on target because it is the right thing to do! We know that a manufacturer’s success is tied directly to the performance of those who they work with. That is why we provide hassle-free, quality parts, on time, because it is the right thing to do. It’s important to us and it’s an important part of why our customers have come to rely on us.

Staub Manufacturing Solutions specializes in sheet metal fabrication, light structural fabrication, high-speed laser blanking and 3D laser cutting.
