30+ Years of Success & Growth
Fox Valley Metal Tech was founded with a vision of quality and manufacturing efficiency that would make our customers successful. The many years of making our customers successful has provided much success to Fox Valley Metal Tech, growing from a 10,000 sq. ft. facility in 1989 to a 110,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility.
The need to expand the business was driven by our customers that had become accustomed to our quality and efficiencies. Automation and new technology were embraced by the company leaders to take advantage of the efficiencies. Multiple plant expansions in 1994, 1996, 2001, 2005, and 2008 supported the growth of the business. Additional space has been leased to continue to support growth and new processes.
In 2004 Fox Valley Metal Tech was acquired by a private investment group including two of the original founders. Multiple investments have been made since then with the same vision the company was founded on. Investment in people and processes were also made and in 2005 Fox Valley Metal Tech became ISO 9000-2000 certified. Fox Valley Metal Tech has continued the ISO 9000 certification process with recertifications to 2008 and 2015 standards.
