Our Story

Our start

Chuck Pisciotta, CEO, started Blue Skies Operating Corp. (Blue Skies) in 2019, by bringing together a group of dreamers (and investors) who believed in the power of the midwestern worker, the pride of homegrown engineering talent and the power of scaling several well-run companies.

Our progress

Blue Skies positions well-run companies for faster growth by focusing in on organizational structure, targeting on key people, creating operational synergies with other businesses in the portfolio using a shared services approach, and using value-added investors. Valence Industrial, a custom fabricator with factories in Sidney, Ohio and Lexington, Kentucky – was acquired in 2019. TruRebel was acquired in 2023, with its headquarters in Sidney, Ohio.


Our why

Blue Skies is committed to bringing more jobs to local American communities, with a focus on employing talented innovators and specialists in their craft.
