Business of the Month » June 2022
"You will never know unless you try." That is the advice that three friends who started a business out of a basement would give entrepreneurs. We are glad that they followed their own advice because Link Construction has been a wonderful asset to Logan County and the surrounding areas. In 1997, Dave Link, Rich Dyer and Reno Stapleton got together and decided to create an industrial and commercial general contracting business out of Dave’s basement. They also completed their first project that year, at People's Savings and Loan in Urbana. Three years later, they purchased their property at 895 County Road 32 N., Bellefontaine and converted the existing farmhouse into their office space. This is still where they call "home" and have also added a 6000 square foot fabrication shop, where most of their steel is welded, pre-cut and fabricated.
Link (President), Stapleton (Vice President) and Dyer (Senior Superintendent) continue to lead the company with the motto "Good people doing good work." When asked what they wanted people to know most about Link Construction, the answer was simple: "We just love to build buildings." With the help of many local suppliers, banks and insurance companies along the way, it is no surprise that now twenty-five years in - Link Construction is one of the area's leading industrial and commercial general contractors. Link is very grateful for the many businesses that have given them the opportunity to work and build for them. One of the most important things they have learned over the years is that to be successful, customers must come first. They are dedicated to listening to the needs and wants of their clients and strive to develop working relationships with the people they build buildings for. Their honesty, integrity and commitment are what sets them apart. Ben Vollrath, Logan County Chamber of Commerce President, states "Link Construction is a key player in the ongoing development of Logan County. Between their commercial construction activity and creation of a prime industrial park on County Road 32, the Link team is always on the lookout for ways to move our community forward." A twenty year member of the Chamber, Link Construction recognizes the benefits of membership because networking connects local businesses to each other in unique ways.
Logan County has been the perfect home for Link Construction, being within an hour drive of their largest client over the years: Honda and Honda suppliers. They have constructed 18 of the large press pits that stamp Honda car parts. Some other projects that Link has completed over the years are - additions and renovations at Honda Marysville Auto Plant, additions at KTH and Honda Transmission Manufacturing, new office and warehouse facilities at NK Parts Industries - just to name a few. The services that Link Construction specialize in are commercial/industrial buildings, commercial renovation, design/build, construction management and steel fabrication. "We like to build," Dave is known to say, and that is evident by all of the great work Link has done around the community. Looking ahead into 2022, he is looking forward to more big projects and things starting to return back to normal.
