Michaels Fence & Supply was started on December 10, 1965, by George and Ann Michaels. A building was leased at 1500 East Yellowstone, Casper, Wyoming, from White Ditching. The original building was a brick structure with a gabled tin roof, 1815 square feet, a small office, and overhead door. At that time, all material was stored inside the building.
George did all the sales, welded gates and installed the fencing with one employee. Ann answered the phone and did the office work from the Michaels' home. Due to growth in 1996, Ann started to work full time at the office on East Yellowstone. It was also at theis time a fence was built around the perimeter of the property in order for the material to be stored outside.
Through the years, a total of five buildings and two additional empty lots were purchased. Extensive remodeling has been done on all but one building. A racquetball court and health club were built in one of the buildings.
The railroad track that ran through the property was purchased from Chicago Northwestern and the whole facility was blacktopped.
In 1989 an electric overhead gate was installed at the main entrance and, in 1990, the offices, customer service counter, and display areas were remodeled and decorated into an inviting entrance and pleasing environment.
At the present time, Michaels Fence & Supply, Inc. now encompasses three blocks and approximately 90,000 square feet. Michaels Fence & Supply, Inc. employs 9 people.
