Banner Welder, Inc., founded in 1948, had been 100% owned by Mr. David V. Uihlein from 1949 until 1984. In 1984, Mr. Uihlein established an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) for the purpose of creating the best possible retirement program for our employees. In July of 1992, the Company's management transferred 100% ownership to the ESOP and management.
