Fourman Enterprises Inc. was started back on March 9th, 1974 in Auburn, Indiana by Ronald Fourman and his wife Linda in a 450 sq. foot garage. The original name was Fourman Hydraulic Repair and later changed to Fourman Enterprises, Inc. With Ron being the owner and only employee at start up, he learned very quickly that he could not leave an “Out to Lunch” sign in the window or he would loose business.
The initial customer base was farmers and contractors (hydraulic cylinders) and then grew into industrial accounts with companies like Dana Corporation and Cooper Tires Industrial Products Division being two of the first.
In 1977 an opportunity to move to South central Indiana presented itself and Hope Indiana was chosen for its central location between Columbus, Greensburg and Shelbyville. As the organization grew, the decision was made to incorporate the business and employees were added including Ron’s wife, Linda who joined as office manager.
Fourman Enterprises, Inc. continued to serve farmers and contractors but the industrial requirements grew to be the larger portion of the business. To better serve all areas a full service machine shop including CNC equipment was added.
After many years of success, Ron decided to retire and sell the company to someone he knew would continue the great customer service and reliability. On July 15th, 1999 the papers were signed and the business was sold to Gary Bailey.
After purchasing the business, Gary has expanded into many different areas that include a full service machine shop, fabricating shop and yes we are still one of the best when it comes to repair of hydraulic cylinders. To view our machinery, please click on the machinery tab at the left of the page.
