Boak & Sons Celebrating 50 Years

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio – Boak & Sons has grown many times over the past 50 years. Sam Boak, president and founder of the company, started it in a garage with a pickup truck.

Later, it expanded to a location on Mahoning Avenue before moving to the current location on Victoria Road where the warehouse is the length of a football field.

As plans are being made to celebrate the milestone, Boak is talking about a succession plan so he can step away one day.

“As I slowly work my way out of here someday, I feel that I can walk out tomorrow and not be worried about it,” Boak says.
