Ideal Industries Inc
In 1916, J. Walter Becker started the Ideal Commutator Dresser Company of Chicago. He manufactured commutator dresser stones with the belief that every product should be worth more than the price paid for it. Service, he said, was part of the product. That idea has been the core IDEAL business principle for over 90 years. Today, the many loyal distributors and customers that make IDEAL successful are a testament to Becker's original philosophy.
