William A. & Ann M. Brothers Scholarship
Bill, at the age of 20, took a basis course at The Lincoln Electric Company in Cleveland, Ohio from 1953 to 1954. In April of 1954, Bill began work at Canton Drop Forge Plant #1 as a welder in the extrusion department. He worked there until 1964. At that time, he took a sales job with Premier Industrial Corp. selling specialty-welding rods. In 1966, Bill started Buckeye Corporation in Canton, Ohio. The Company served as a distributor for NCG-Chemetron. In 1973, Bill purchased Mansfield Oxygen Corp. from Mr. and Mrs. E. O. Delp. Here he developed the company with bulk liquid deliveries and built an acetylene plant in 1982. In 1990, his wife, Ann, a retired RN with Aultman Hospital, joined the business handling all the regularity requirements required for the distributors. On August 1, 2001, Bill and Ann sold Buckeye Corporation and Mansfield Oxygen Corp. to Valley National Gases.
