FBi Buildings was founded in 1958 by Edwin Bahler. Since then we have built more than 20,000 post frame buildings (or pole barns as our customers like to call them). Known initially as Farm Builders, we primarily focused on serving the agricultural market.
When the demand for post frame started to grow, we realized that we needed to expand our business. Over time, we started building more commercial, residential, and equine buildings. We also started seeing a demand for building repairs and renovations, and have our very own crews dedicated to serving that market.
The Farm Builders name eventually became outdated and we re-marketed ourselves as FBi Buildings. Over 60 years have passed, and we are currently under the leadership of the founder’s son, Ed Bahler, carrying on a proud tradition of family values.
We’re commonly known as one of the leaders in the post frame industry. We’re proud to provide our customers with only the highest quality building materials, but it’s our consultative approach that truly sets us apart from our competitors.
From design and engineering to schedules and budgets, we work closely with you to understand your unique needs and challenges. What sets us apart from others is our partnership with our customers. From your initial call to the sale of your building, we are with you every step during the building and construction process.
Did you know that many of our building innovations have now become industry standards? But despite our accomplishments, we never stop striving to become even better. We know that’s how we can best serve you.
Our building innovations:
Our headquarters is located in Remington, Indiana (the same place where we started over 60 years ago).
Our primary territory primarily covers Illinois and Indiana, with some surrounding areas. When you’re ready to meet with a salesperson, you’ll always be working with someone local to your area.
We also have over 20 in-house crews, and they too will be local to your area.
Our governing values are, “Do Right. On Time. With Excellence.” It’s what we expect from our employees — and what our employees can expect from us.
