The Bliss Family

With over 40 years of experience in the design and manufacture of hammer mills, CSE Bliss operators Rick and Jason Bliss have unparalleled knowledge and know-how in building CSE’s range of products as well as custom fabrication and on & offsite troubleshooting. CSE Bliss is the only place in the industry that you can get the true Bliss family experience, customer care and technical knowledge.

Rick Bliss

In 1980 along with my father Bill Bliss, and my brother Alan Bliss we founded Bliss Industries. Together we built and designed the Bliss Hammermill that is still being produced today. In July of 2007 we sold Bliss Industries and I continued to work for the new owners until May of 2016.

My son, Jason Bliss, worked alongside his grandfather, his uncle, and me his whole life. He worked both in the shop designing and building equipment and in the sales office determining the proper equipment selection for specific applications. Jason founded CSE Bliss Manufacturing LLC in 2016, and I joined him in May of 2017. Together with my 38 years of experience and Jason’s 20 years in the Hammermill industry, we have designed what we believe is the best Hammermill on the market. We can’t take all the credit, we had some input from my brother Alan Bliss as well.

CSE Bliss Manufacturing LLC is a new company, but one that has a lot of experience, industry knowledge, and history behind it. We may be small now, but we are growing fast. I have always believed that taking care of the customer is the number one priority, and is the key to being successful in this industry and in any business. I feel that being a family owned and operated business is a great way to stay connected with our customers. We are now, and will always be directly involved. My father’s favorite phrase and slogan was “Better Built by Bliss”, and CSE Bliss is the only place in the industry that you can get the true Bliss family experience. Bill Bliss is no longer with us, but our intention is to run our new business with the same spirit, passion, and personal touch.

The Hammermill we have designed is built to withstand anything the industry can throw at it, and the maintenance is simple. CSE can also help you with replacement parts for all brands of Hammermills currently out there. We also offer rotary feeders, and can rebuild your worn out rotary feeder to be better and stronger than new!

I greatly appreciate all the positive response Jason and I have received from the industry and we look forward to doing business with each one of you.

Jason Bliss

Jason Bliss is the President of CSE Bliss Manufacturing LLC., which he founded in 2016 to design, and manufacture equipment for the modern-day hammermill industry. Jason grew up in the hammermill industry working alongside his grandfather Bill Bliss, father Rick Bliss, and uncle Alan Bliss, which are the three original founders of Bliss Industries.

Jason believes in strong family values, so much so the CSE stands for his three kids Coltan, Shelby, and Emmalyn. He believes a family ran business allows you to have better relationships with customers, and allows CSE Bliss Manufacturing LLC. to produce the best quality product on the market.

Jason has extensive experience in the fabrication and design of equipment for the hammermill industry. He has worked from the bottom up. He started sweeping floors as soon as he was old enough to hold a broom, and as he grew his duties at Bliss Industries grew along with him.

Jason has worked as a welder, machinist, and in sales directly for the hammermill industry.
