Growing up, Megan became increasingly interested in the business side of her family’s farming operation so she attended and graduated from Purdue University with Bachelor of Science Degrees in Finance and Marketing. In 2018, she joined the FBi team to manage social media outlets and create creative media content. Megan’s previous work experience is operations based in the banking industry. Outside of work, she spends her time taking Pure Barre classes, going on water and snow sport trips and trying new restaurants.

Deciding to build a pole barn is a large undertaking. From making the initial calls to the best pole barn builders, all the way to the final touches. The people designing and constructing your post frame building influence your overall experience...from start to finish.

Since 1958, FBi Buildings has invested in people and processes to provide customers access to a team of forward-thinking individuals that together build the best post frame buildings.

In this video, Ed Bahler, CEO, reflects on growing up watching his father, FBi Buildings’ founder, grow the company on a foundation of family values.

He discusses your frequently asked questions surrounding the business name:

  • How did FBi Buildings get its name?
  • What does FBi stand for?

It’s not uncommon for customers to think of us as your typical agriculture and farm shop builder; however, the pole barn process is a viable construction option for commercial, suburban and equine segments.

Check out the video to see exterior and interior images of unique commercial projects. 


  At FBi Buildings, we’re built different to empower our customers to have confidence in their buildings.
