Steelman Industries, Inc was incorporated in 1957. Primarily serving the oil and gas industry, the company manufactured electrical controls and equipment, including the one-of-a-kind static phase converters.
A division of this new company was an electric motor repair shop that serviced the East Texas area. Business quickly increased to the point that a larger process oven was needed for the rewinding operation. Drawing on their engineering, metal fabrication, and electrical control experience, Steelman designed and built their own industrial process oven.
A few weeks after the oven was completed, a vendor saw the oven during his visit and asked about the manufacturer. He was amazed to discover that it was manufactured in-house! He immediately wanted to offer the Steelman Process Oven to the motor shop industry, and the Steelman Oven line was born!
In the early 1980’s Steelman expanded their electrical control line to include rotary phase convertors and power factor correction equipment.
In 1992, Steelman entered the heat-cleaning industry by introducing their Advanced Burn-off Oven with patented Automatic Process Control and Top Down Heating, which quickly gained the same reputation of quality that has become synonymous with Steelman.
For more than 60 years Steelman has been constantly working to make their quality equipment and customer service even better.
