Darex began in 1973 in Beecher, Illinois. The D, A and R of DAREX are the initials of three generations of the Bernard family; David, Arthur and Richard Bernard. David and his father Richard founded Darex. Grandfather Arthur Bernard, who earlier founded the Bernard Welding Company, contributed his energy and guidance to Darex.
In 1978, Darex relocated to Ashland, Oregon where we are located today. In 2012, Matthew Bernard became the fourth generation family owner of the company.
