Eastern Engineering Expands Into Ohio-Acquires Toledo Blue

Fishers, IN, March 31, 2017 – Eastern Engineering is expanding its territory into Toledo, Ohio. Eastern Engineering currently has 3 locations (Muncie, Fishers, and Ft.Wayne) and is continuing their pattern of growth with the acquisition of Toledo Blue Print and Paper Company. This acquisition will provide Eastern Engineering and their team quicker and easier access to the customer base in Northern Indiana and Ohio territories. Mark Langdon, CEO of Eastern stated, “We are looking forward to a strong partnership between Eastern Engineering and the longtime dedicated employees of Toledo Blue. Eastern will be able to offer the Toledo market more options, convenience, and technology than they currently have and we think it will be a win-win for all involved”

Toledo Blue Print and Paper Company started out as small family owned business in 1911 in downtown Toledo. Along with selling blue print machines and making copies of prints, Toledo Blue Print carried paper supplies, art supplies, office furniture, engineering supplies, and architectural supplies. They prided themselves with same day or next day delivery. In 2002, Toledo Blue Print was sold and moved out of downtown Toledo to nearby Northwood, Ohio where they are currently located.

The name will be changed shortly to reflect the new ownership as well as updated services, supplies, and equipment available to those in the Toledo market. The experienced team currently in place at Toledo Blue have a long history of great customer service and Eastern Engineering looks forward to working with staff and customers to continue this trend.
