Our Team

Bill Issler - Founder & President

Our Founder and President, Bill Issler, worked in the structural steel industry for over 40 years. He developed FabSuite, a comprehensive suite of information management tools that became a standard resource for the steel fabrication industry. Bill sold FabSuite to Trimble in 2017, an international technology corporation and that software was rebranded as Tekla PowerFab.
