We’re Proud of Our Company History
In the beginning, the J. Edwin Aspinall Company, now known as Aspinall Associates, Inc. had its humble beginnings back in 1939. As with any new business in those post-depression days, it was a struggle for the first couple of years. The economy was rough until 1941 when the company had the good fortune of being appointed as the Indiana Representative for The Sloan Valve Company. The rest is history! Bradley, Eemax, Oasis, and T & S Brass are just a few of the top-drawer manufacturers that were added to the Aspinall portfolio through the years.
In 1957, Mr. Paul W. Vogt joined the company. The J. Edwin Aspinall Company was incorporated in 1964 and became Aspinall Associates, Incorporated, today also known as “AAI”. Paul Vogt assumed the leadership role in 1975 and directed the company until July of 1998. During that 23 years watch, he successfully led the company through the post Viet Nam war economy, and several recessions as well as a few boom economies. After 41 years as a manufacturer’s representative, and 23 years of leadership, Mr. Paul Vogt commands a great deal of respect from their principals, customers, and even our competitors in the market place. Paul retired as President of Aspinall Associates in July of 1998, but continues to this day with the company on a part time basis. His advice, direction and consulting is a tremendous resource and greatly valued by his two sons who succeeded him.
RT Vogt, – Chairman / CEO / CFO and Randy Vogt, CPMR – President, have a combined total of over 80 years’ experience between them in the Plumbing and Heating industry. RT Joined the company in 1974 and Randy began 7 years later in 1981. Like the gentlemen before them, they realize that the representative business is solely based around one’s ability to service their customer’s needs. To keep such a high level of customer service excellence, they have surrounded themselves with bright, knowledgeable and industry experienced people. See staff page
