CM Buck & Associates, Inc.
What is now a diversified, innovative company began with the talent and passion of a mechanical engineer, Chauncey M. Buck. CM Buck & Associates, Inc. was founded in 1941 in Indianapolis and has since expanded to serve the Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio markets. Now, 75 years after the company’s inception, we are proud to carry on Chauncey’s legacy by upholding a high level of technical and engineering support to our customers.
In 1953, Chauncey’s son-in-law, Denton E. Hall joined the company. As a graduate of the University of Illinois with a degree in electrical engineering with an emphasis on illumination, Denton’s vision and innovative thinking helped the formation of CM Buck’s power and lighting divisions. In 1961, Denton assumed full ownership of the company with the philosophy for the future of the company that is still maintained today: Regardless of how diversified the company becomes, CM Buck continues to specialize in every aspect of our various divisions. This assures our customers are receiving the highest level of service and support.
In 1988, Daniel S. (Dan) Hall became president of CM Buck and in 1990 became full owner. In 1999, the company restructured to create four managing partners. Serving in those roles are: Dan Hall, V.P. for power; Karl Fancher, V.P. for O.E.M.: David Simpson, V.P. for lighting and Richard Hall, V.P. for C.M. Buck’s northern operation. By continuing the tradition of innovation and specialization, the four partners have kept CM Buck on the cutting edge of future technologies.
Today, CM Buck spans four generations. We are committed to continuing Chauncey Buck’s legacy of excellence. CM Buck remains focused on our customers’ needs, going above and beyond to find the right solution with the right product while providing excellent follow-up service. It is imperative our customers are completely satisfied with the products and services we provide. We pride ourselves on being excellent manufacturers’ representatives by being knowledgeable about our products and having a full understanding of old, current and future technologies in our respective areas. Whether it is identifying a small component in a piece of equipment or managing an entire project, CM Buck has the expertise to assist in whatever capacity we are needed to ensure our customers successfully purchase, install, and maintain the products we represent.
