In memory of Arleene L. Langguth
We are sad to say that on July 10th of 2021, we lost Arleene L. Langguth, wife of Bob Langguth. Arleene was instrumental in founding Eagle Engraving and without her we would not have grown to where we are today. She attended fire conferences with Bob for many years, and was known and loved by many. There will be a small private service in her memory. Sympathy cards may be mailed directly to Eagle Engraving at P.O. Box 541, St. Charles, IL, 60174. In lieu of money or flowers, monetary donations may be sent in memory of Arleene L. Langguth to the Illinois Alzheimer's Association at 225 N. Michigan Ave., Floor 17, Chicago, IL, 60601. The Illinois Alzheimer's Association is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Donations are tax-deductible. Their federal tax ID number is 13-3039601. You can find them at this link: https://www.alz.org/illinois/donate

In 2000, Laurie Petrick joined Bob with the intent of spending a few hours building a website. With a common goal of building Eagle Engraving, Bob and Laurie turned their attention to serving the fire and public safety field with accountability products, badges, and awards while still serving their retail and wholesale customers.
Bob Langguth started Eagle Engraving in 1977 with a manual engraving machine working in his basement. Early customers were mainly businesses needing name and office signs for employees and also organizations needing member name tags. During that time, Bob was also working full-time in the title insurance industry and part-time with the County of Kane.
By 2001, Eagle Engraving was starting to grow and Laurie was working full-time. In 2002, Eagle Engraving moved to our first location at 1820 Wallace Avenue, Unit 104. We expanded our business again in 2004 with the addition of Unit 103 and Unit 102. In 2020 we again outgrew our facility and moved to our current location at 3935 Commerce Drive. Our facility now occupies 8,000 square feet where, though our staff has grown, we still maintain a family atmosphere. Quality is controlled by the personal pride of our dedicated co-workers; they ensure you receive the finest products available. Service is our backbone. Your order will be processed efficiently and delivered on time. If you have a problem or question, you can expect prompt, fair, and courteous attention from our customer service representatives. Our central location allows for prompt delivery to all customers. “We are big enough to serve and small enough to care.”
