The following excerpts are taken from letters we have received from some of our customers:
Dear John Young,
Yesterday, March 17th, Berry delivered and installed the steeple we ordered from your company. Cahill UMC is now the most beautiful church in the area ,thanks to you folks at Campbellsville Industries. It has been a journey to this point and you have been patient in leading us to the end of that journey. Berry is a wonder and was a joy to work with. What a blessing he is.
The family who donated the steeple ,in honor of their wife and mother, couldn't be more pleased with the results. As a matter of fact ,the husband can see the steeple ,from his home which is about two miles away, both in daylight and at night. We have lights on the steeple and it is beautiful.
On behalf of the donors ,and the congregation at Cahill, may we say thank you to all who were involved in the making, delivering and the instillation of this beautiful steeple.
I am sending a picture I took on the evening of March 17th . Please forward to all involved in this project. Thank you.

Dear Mr. Sapp:
Re: Delivery and installation of steeple for First Presbyterian Church (FPC) of Marietta, Georgia
I want to take this opportunity to express our gratitude toward your company for the quality of the product we received and professionalism of the installers that delivered our new steeple that you manufactured. Timmy Milby & Jimmy Burton are to be commended for their dedication to ensuring your company is well represented. They worked through weather conditions that were much less than perfect and completed on time and, most important, without incident. Our new steeple has been well received by the congregation along with the entire Marietta community.
If references are ever needed by your company rest assure that we hear at FPC would gladly acknowledge the on time, on budget, and good customer relations that you have provided us. Thank you again.

Dear Mr. England,
We wish to thank you and your crew from Campbellsville Industries, Inc., on the great job performed on our Courthouse.
We are extremely lucky to have contracted with your company to complete our Dome/Cupola project after our devastating fire. Your entire crew was professional and pleasant. They obviously took great pride in their work, and it showed in so many ways.
The people of Jefferson County have stiff necks today from looking up! It is a beautiful site to see!
I watched the process and was pleased at how quickly and efficiently the job was completed. I know that hours of painstaking work went in to the preparation. We so appreciate it.
Please thank Barry, Doug, Adam and the rest of the crew that came to Madison. Please also thank the other company members who participated in this project. I saw Barry on a Louisville TV station being interviewed about the project - and he did great!
On a side note, I took Grant County Commissioner Mark Bradsbury, through the Courthouse last Saturday. He was able to inspect the Dome/Cupola for an upcoming project in Marian, Indiana. Their Dome blew off in a windstorm in 1943, and they would like to replace it. We recommended your company to them and you may be hearing from them.
Thank you again on behalf of the people of Jefferson County, Indiana.

I just wanted to let you know how pleased our congregation members are with our new steeple. It looks great and everyone is very pleased. Also I want you to let the men who installed it know that we were pleased with their work. They really seemed to know their business and they made what seemed to be a very large job seem so easy. Everything about the installation seemed to go smooth.
Thank you all very much.
I just wanted to send a quick message commending Barry and his crew for the professionalism and competency in the erection and installation of the cupola at the Hamilton County Courthouse. They conducted themselves in a professional and courteous manner at all times. They kept the site picked up and was vigilant when it came to safety. I would welcome them back on any future project that I might be a part of.

David and Burr,
I just wanted to let you know how pleased Dan and I are with the work done by Campbellsville's Troy Jenkins and his helper today at Pilgrim Church in managing the temporary removal of our spire. They were prompt, friendly, very professional and very helpful. The new galvanized bracket fit perfectly. After the spire was resting horizontally, Troy spent some extra time carefully extracting our weather vane mount which appeared to be frozen in place.
We intend to send a more formal thank you letter to Campbellsville when the project is completed this summer. However, in the meantime if you need a reference for another church spire project, please mention Pilgrim Church as a satisfied customer that they are welcome to contact as a reference.

Dear Mr. O’Brien:
I am delighted to be able to be a reference for Campbellsville Industries.
When we were hired to be the restoration architects for St. Augustine’s Church, whose steeple had blown off in a storm, our extensive research led us to Campbellsville Industries to fabricate the new structure. They were selected because they were one of the only fabricators who could handle a steeple of that scale and complexity. They were able to provide the results we required using custom, standard and salvaged elements; by providing soup-to-nuts services that included the design and erection of the interior steel skeleton, the delivery of the fabricated parts, the on-site assembly of the parts and the hoisting of the sections into place; and by working closely with us to meet a budget imposed by the insurance settlement.
They made an in-person presentation to the Philadelphia Historical Commission, who was initially skeptical of a historically accurate all-aluminum steeple, and convinced them that they would be pleased with the results. In fact, I’m happy to say, we were awarded the Award of Excellence by the Preservation Alliance of Philadelphia.
We would welcome the opportunity to work with Campbellsville again. It was an enjoyable and rewarding experience. Feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.

Happy New Year. It is good to hear your company is doing well. I am very glad to share a few thoughts as a recommendation about your company. We were pleased to work with Campbellsville Industries on the Camden Station restoration project here in Baltimore back when the ball park opened.
Campbellsville Industries was our savior in dealing with a structure that had not existed since it had to be dismantled around the Civil War era. The original structure was only up a couple of years and had to be dismantled down to the lowest tier due to structural deficiencies. We had redesign the replacement towers and total restoration from the only surviving 5" x 5" photo of the original 1865 building. Heaped on that was the schedule to redesign and construct the total exterior building reconstruction and restoration in less than 11 months to meet opening day.
Campbellsville Industries took our design and structural details and tuned them to a more efficient structure. They had excellent recommendations from lessons they learned over many years of dealing with similar structures. Their lighter, internal truss design helped to simplify the construction and erection process dramatically. The shop drawings were very clear and thorough. They were willing to make changes we suggested and work with us on variations that were for the betterment of the project.
The project came in three huge pieces and were set on the street and flown up in two days. It was an actual news worthy event that day and was very exciting. I would highly recommend Campbellsville Industries for any vertical towers or structures using state of the art materials and will call them again when we have a repeat project.

Thank you for the beautiful steeple you built on our church last week. It is so appropriate. Some steeples are too small while others are too large. Ours is just right. You built it for Zion.....I wrote some lines which I thought you might enjoy which I have enclosed.
"To the glory of God we have added a steeple
That helps us build faith in all of the people
And create a love for those in or out
When it stirs every mind of what God's all about.
Our steeple points up to the sky
To tell each one who passes by
That God in Heaven up above
Sends down to everyone His love.
You can become part of His church
When you accept Him; it's your birth
Into His kingdom, you'll abide
Forever with the saints inside."
Thank you again for your courtesies. Cordially yours,
George W. Armbrister, Pastor
