W.C. Heller & Company was founded in Montclair, New Jersey, in 1891, by our great-grandfather, William C. Heller. The company was incorporated in New Jersey in 1899 and so, to this day, is still a New Jersey corporation. In 1906, W.C. Heller & Company moved to Montpelier, Ohio, and has been located on the same property ever since.
