ProcessBarron is a leader in the design, manufacturing, installation, maintenance, and repair of air, gas, and material handling equipment for a variety of heavy industrial applications. Since its founding in 1981 as Process Equipment, Inc., ProcessBarron has expanded its service and production capabilities through strategic acquisitions, a long history of quality workmanship, and superior customer responsiveness. Over the past three decades, offerings have grown from fan repairs to "integrated solutions" that include all components related to the movement of air, gas, or materials to and from boilers, kilns, and furnaces.
ProcessBarron offers a wide range of products and services to customers throughout the world in the pulp and paper, iron and steel, utility, cement, lime, wood products, textile, foundry and mining industries.
In 1981, Process Equipment, Inc. was formed to offer fan impeller fabrication, general heavy steel fabrication and engineering design services. The founders asked themselves the question, “What else can we do for our customers?” The answer was to expand their offerings to include fan repair and rebuild, air system auxiliary equipment, fuel and ash handling systems and field installation, opening the door to a strong demand for on-site field work and time-sensitive technical services (equipment repair, unexpected outages, and maintenance shutdowns).
In 1988, a licensing agreement with Raumaster Oy, a leading European materials handling company, enabled Process Equipment to further expand its service and production capabilities in the materials handling industry.
In 1995, Process Equipment acquired Weigel Engineering, an engineering firm dedicated to repairing accessory parts to boilers, including pressure part upgrades, boiler air system upgrade, air heaters, and boiler performance enhancements.
In May of 2002, Process Equipment purchased Barron Industries, a household name in the new fan industry with over 40 years of experience in air handling equipment and systems, thus expanding its marketshare and integrated solution strategy of fan and system design, manufacturing, installation, and repair.
To further expand its specialized service offerings, in 2004 Process Equipment acquired PE Flo-Tech Inc., a designer of dampers, expansion joints, and air handling accessory parts.
Most recently, in 2007, Southern Field was acquired, adding additional field installation and technical service resources, and expanding Process Equipment's boiler service capabilities.
Today, we are stronger than ever, manufacturing, installing, repairing, and servicing air, gas, and material handling systems around the globe as ProcessBarron.
