Our History

Airmate Company was started in Toledo, Ohio in 1946 following World War II by Naval Aviator, Richard Schreder.  His dream was to design and build airplanes.  He began at square one by making drafting instruments from acrylic, a superior plastic developed during the war.  Blueprint shops bought his product line because they didn’t turn yellow and were accurate.  Before long this start up business consumed all of Richard’s time.  The company grew over the years and moved to Bryan, Ohio in 1962.  Richard’s wife Angie became president of Airmate Company and he concentrated on designing new products.

In 1985 the founders’ daughter, Carol Schreder, joined the firm.  Templates were added to the product mix and the company entered the Advertising Specialty Industry.  New milling equipment and silk screen printing systems were developed and modified by in house engineers and machine builders to fit Airmate’s needs.  Today, in our second generation of ownership, we service customers with a variety of products across the US and throughout the world.
