About Us
George Vardal, an engineer working at Ford Aircraft, and his brother Denis, also a draftsman in the department, thought Joliet needed a blueprinter. They decided they were the two men for the job, and in 1958 they started Collins Blueprint Service.

Within two years, the brothers had outgrown the original location and moved to Cass St. With more space they offered additional services, adding drafting supplies and college and high school textbooks.
In 1965, through hard work and outstanding customer service, George and Denis again expanded their business, moving to East Jefferson Street, and changing the name to Vardal Engineering Supply to better reflect the variety of products they offered. Surveying instruments were also added to their product line.
In 1979, expanding operations again, Vardal Engineering Supply was split into two companies: Vardal Engineering and Vardal Survey Systems. Vardal Engineering continues in operation, with Denis and his daughter Denise at the helm. Vardal Survey Systems was created to handle the survey instruments, adding a full complement of field supplies and the emerging technologies of construction lasers and machine control. Vardal Survey has been thriving under the leadership of Sande, Laura and Paul Vardal and their staff for 34 years.
In 2001, after more than four decades of continuing growth, we moved to our current and larger facility on West Jefferson Street, where we broadened our in-house service capability. We continue to add products for large and small contractors, road builders, engineers and surveyors.

We are proud to point out that, although only 33% of family businesses successfully transition generational ownership, the Vardal companies continue to grow and thrive. We take pride in our reputation, and we believe that it's our insistence on quality products, our commitment to fair pricing, and our top-notch repair technicians that keep us the preferred supplier of many.

So, to our current and loyal customers, we say Thank You! To our new customers we say Welcome! And to all of you, we say We appreciate your referral to our next customer. Our ultimate goal is to provide you with products and services that will benefit your production, meet your needs, and surpass your expectations.
