Congratulations to Jack Bartingale who was inducted into the Eau Claire Chamber of Commerce Business Hall of Fame on Tuesday June 16th. The hall recognizes individuals and families who have made significant contributions to their business and the community. The seventh class of inductees is made up of Jack Bartingale, Dick Cable, Orrin H. Ingram, Don Litchfield and the Wood family.
Jack followed in his father’s footsteps as he ran the family business from the early 1970’s until his retirement in 1992.
In 1989 Jack made an offer to seven of his employees; the opportunity for a new company to be formed; a parallel company. As business for Bartingale Mechanical increased, Jack slowly stepped aside to allow the new company to grow. We who are now at Bartingale Mechanical are thankful for the time and dedication Jack gave to build the company that we are proud to work for today.
