During the regular meeting of Batavia Township Trustees Tuesday, Feb. 2, administrator Rex Parsons introduced Jason Dugle, the president of Deltec, to the trustees.
“Each year the trustees give an award to a business within the township which is invaluable to Batavia Township. This year the award goes to Deltec,” said Parsons.
“On behalf of myself and all the employees at Deltec, I want to thank you for this award. It’s an honor,” said Dugle. “My grandfather started the business in 1973 with an invention. In 1982, at the age 35, my dad, Chris Dugle, became the president of Deltec and on my 35th birthday in 2008, I took over as president.”
Dugle noted that he grew up with the business and recalled working for his father when he was small, doing whatever was needed around the grounds.
"Our business grew in the 90s and we began to shift our focus to custom fabrication," said Dugle. "In 2001, we employed 63 people."
Dugle explained the importance of the logo for Deltec which includes six triangles and three triangles all set within one larger triangle.
"The six triangles represent our operations, laser/punch, bending, machining, welding, finishing and powder coating; the three triangles represent our principles, honesty, integrity and quality and the large triangle represents the Holy Trinity," said Dugle.
The business is located at 4230 Grissom Drive in Batavia.
"Deltec was one of our supporters for the Veterans Memorial Plaza and we appreciate what you are doing within the community," said board president Archie Wilson.
