Bower Tiling Service, Inc. began in 1900. George W. Bower bought his first steam powered Buckeye Trencher and started Bower Tiling Service. Later, his sons, Richard and William, would form a partnership with their father. In approximately 1955, Richard bought William's share of the business. In approximately 1958, George retired and left Richard to run the company. In 1964, another partnership was formed with Richard's sons, Jack and Tom. Richard retired in 1976 and the business went on to be incorporated in 1981. In 1985 a second company was formed, Great Lakes Inter-Drain Inc. In 1995, Tom Bower left Bower Tiling to head up Great Lakes Inter-Drain, Inc. In 2015 Jack and Tom both retired. Jack's daughter Wendy Jett and son-in-law Jim Jett are now co-owners of Bower Tiling and also purchased Great Lakes Inter-Drain, now known as Bower's Great Lakes Inter-Drain. Working in the office along with Wendy is  Wendy & Jim's daughter in law Grace Jett,  and Josh Churchill helps with the GPS mapping.  Nick Bower works in the field along with Jim Jett operating the plow and trencher.
