When Joseph Bischel founded Northern Crossarm Co. Inc. in 1922, it is doubtful he ever expected his company to grow from a one man manufacturing firm into one of the leading wood treating companies in the Great Lake States area. Today Joe Bischel’s company is owned and operated by his grandson Pat Bischel.  The principles founded by Joseph Bischel in the mid 1920s of honest, hard work, integrity and willingness to serve are the cornerstone of the company’s foundation.  Together with the contributions of its dedicated employees, Northern Crossarm Company exemplifies what it means to be a leader in the industry.
