Our Facilities

Our state of the art Machining Center in Hillsboro Ohio


About Us
Our Machining Center

Bear Mechanical was started in 1970 and is an LLC partnership owned by Charles W. (Bill) Bear, and his sons Ray (Tony) Bear and Heith Butler.

The facility is currently home to three companies, including Bear Mechanical's state of the art machining center. Two other companies that make our facility their home are Frog Blasters International, LLC and Railroad Tools and Solutions (LLC).

Frog Blasters International, LLC performs a process familiar to railroaders called EDH to a major component of a railroad switch called a frog. The process lengthens the life span of a frog by hardening the metal manganese, from which the frog is cast.

Railroad Tools And Solutions (LLC) is a tool and supply company. This company serves railroads, contractors, transit authorities and other suppliers with tools and components. They also offer a state of the art web site for purchasing and quote requests.

Meet Our Founder
Charles (Bill) Bear

Charles (Bill) Bear is a local icon. As a gift to the community and with the blessing of the Conservancy, Bill volunteered his efforts and a great deal of money to restore the landscaping of a local historical treasure, the sacred Fort Salem enclosure and Indian burial mound. Landscaping this area came with it's challenges... trees needed to be removed without disrupting the ground, for example! Bill and his crew dedicated 14 hour days to remove trees, and return the dirt in this labor intensive project. You see the Indians kept their grounds in pristine condition. This site is now open to the public, read more on website:

Although officially retired, Bill makes regular trips to the shop. He offers his insight to his sons, and keeps us laughing in the breakroom.
