History of Valley Interior Systems

HistoryValley Interior Systems was founded in 1981 as a union interior subcontracting firm specializing in drywall, framing, acoustical ceilings, and plastering serving the Tri-State area. In 1986 Bill Strawser bought Valley Interior Systems from his two partners setting the stage for tremendous growth and success.

Joining Bill were his two sons, John and Mike, and Jeff Hudepohl, who previously worked with Bill. This core team, in addition to working on many marquee projects in the Greater Cincinnati area, began to define the principles of Valley Interior Systems that remain today.

In response to numerous requests by general contractors, Valley Interior Systems expanded into other markets and cities beginning in 1990. Valley now operates offices with a full staff in Columbus, Dayton, and Toledo, Ohio, and Lexington, Kentucky, offering our clients unmatched dedicated service and quality craftsmanship.

In 2007 the leadership team began defining its vision for further growth and success. As a result, the leadership team developed a company vision statement. That vision statement remains today and is a driving force for the continued growth and success of Valley Interior Systems, Inc.

2021 marked the 40th year in business and at the beginning of 2021 Valley made another step in the vision of Bill Strawser to evolve the company from within. Valley transitioned the ownership from John, Mike, and Jeff to a small group of key employees and family members. From this group, Justin Taulbee assumed the role as President, with Troy Vance as CEO and Jeremy Turi as COO. Our new ownership group is a great mixture of experienced, long term employees, schooled in the Valley vision, and family members who are eager to carry on the legacy of the Strawser and Hudepohl families.

Similar to the way in which Bill Strawser transitioned ownership to Mike, John, and Jeff, the three of them intend to continue to remain involved as a member of the Company’s board of directors and assuming new advisory roles.
