Dale Reindl, chairman of the board of Reindl Bindery Co., Inc., Germantown, WI, was inducted into the Binding Industries Association Hall of Fame during the 2014 BIA Annual Conference in Dallas, TX. The Hall of Fame honors binding and looseleaf manufacturing industry executives who have gone far beyond the standard obligations to become a dominant force in the shaping of BIA and the business of finishing.
Reindls career began with Boehm Bindery, a Milwaukee book bindery, working alongside his father Charles (Charlie) Reindl during summers, weekends and holidays during his high school and college years. He taught printing for 13 years at a Milwaukee high school. While continuing to teach, he started Reindl Bindery with his father in 1978.
In 1980, he left teaching to run the bindery full time. Over the next 18 years, he relocated the bindery three times to reflect the continual growth of the business. In 2007, he and his wife, Kathy, who was the companys vice president, handed the reins of the business to their sons, David and Steven, who moved the bindery to its current location in Germantown, WI.
