The Fike Story
Like so many other successful companies, Fike is also founded upon humble roots.
“We were born on invention, engineering and manufacturing,” said Brad Batz, current President and CEO of Fike and nephew of Les Fike Jr. “Oftentimes, we’d run across something and ask, can we make that?”
“We have the awesome opportunity and capability to develop and deliver a valuable product,” Brad said. “When our products are needed, they work, and allow people to return home to their families. We care about more than just profit; it’s about the employees and the effect we have on their lives, the communities in which we live, and especially the people whom we help protect.”
