Our company can trace its origins back to WWII. In the early 1940s, AERO Welding was founded in Aurora, IL in response to the war effort. They fabricated metal components for the Army Air Corps, which later became the US Air Force. After the war, AERO Welding hired returning soldiers as welders and fabricators as it transitioned into a more traditional metal fabrication business. Years later, the company was renamed Fabtek and continued to fabricate metal goods.
In 2002, we introduced our first line of stainless steel boiler products. The boiler industry had traditionally used carbon steel tanks and cast-iron pumps on their boiler systems. Often, they only last a few years due to the challenging operating conditions and corrosive nature of steam condensate from chemically treated and untreated feed water. By employing stainless steel construction, we can offer systems that last for many years more than the carbon steel systems provided by our competitors, all at a minimal expense.
