As John Boos & Co. celebrates over 125 years of continuous business, they stand with strength built on a block of American history. The well recognized gourmet Boos Block ® brand has become significant to the heritage and reputation. Having adapted to market changes through the years, the company continues to grow in its service to the gourmet, foodservice, residential, supermarket, and industrial markets.

During the 125th anniversary year of John Boos & Co., the company has expanded with a move to a new corporate office location combined with a new metal plant facility in Effingham, IL. The new facility at nearly 87,000 square feet, located on over 12 acres of property will allow us to “grow forward” with relocating our current Effingham wood plant facility and on-site kilns to the same new location within the next few years.

Joe Emmerich, President of John Boos & Co., states: “Visionary leaders have fostered John Boos & Co. success every step of the way. The changes in America’s history are built-in incentive for our company to be very open and flexible to the same degree of change.”
