Wellys Monument Company
Providing northwest Ohio with quality monuments since 1960
In 1960, Arthur Welly, founder of Wellys Monument Company, became a salesman for the American Monument Company in Tiffin, Ohio. After much success in this endeavor Arthur installed a showroom in his home and started delivering his own memorials. At this time he made an average of 500 deliveries each year in locations from Columbus, Ohio to Detroit, Michigan.
In 1979, at an age of 19, Art’s youngest son and current owner, Tim, became involved in the business. Tim made deliveries while Art handled the business side of the company. Ten years later in 1989, after getting married, and the birth of their first child, Lucas; Tim and and his wife, Beth, bought Wellys Monument Company from Art.
Tim ran the business out of the basement of his parent’s house for 13 years, keeping it very much a family affair. By 2002 the monument company had seen a vast amount of growth and Tim made the decision to relocate to an independent building, still in Tiffin, where the home office is located today.
Employed is a staff of salesmen, artists, and installers to design and create that special memorial. He uses three different computer programs to design one-of-a-kind memorials, with no limitations on size or shape. Wellys Monument Company also features the area’s largest indoor display, where his custom creations can be viewed.
