Industrial Fiberglass Specialties, Inc.

  • Last modified 2 years ago
  • Ohio, US

Industrial Fiberglass Specialties traces its ‘roots’ back to 1946 and the original Carl N. Beetle Co. Beetle was one of the first fabricators in the United States of industrial corrosion resistant FRP equipment.

Today, Industrial Fiberglass Specialties fills a role as a ‘fabricator’s fabricator’. Our primary business is building special and difficult fabrications requiring high technology, specialized resins, and expert tooling and machining capabilities for other O.E.M. manufacturers, fabricators and/or their distributors. In this role, we are a custom manufacturer building to the design specifications, laminate sequences, and resin matrix specifications of our customers. Thus, if you were to specify that you want FRP composite equipment built to the same specifications as Ameron Series 4000 epoxy pipe and fittings; our laminate sequence and fabrication details would mirror those specifications.

Industrial Fiberglass Specialties, and sister and subsidiary companies, approach fabrication of composites from an engineering viewpoint. All of our management are graduate engineers. We are committed to prompt response, high quality and concern for the customer’s requirements. We enjoy tackling the difficult – making things happen.

The depth of Industrial Fiberglass Specialties goes beyond just its management. For example, The Dayton plant’s superintendent has over 17 years of supervisory experience in this industry. We have numerous other employees with FRP composite experience in excess of 20 years.

The purpose of this recital is simply to demonstrate that we are not a ‘Johnny Come Lately’. You can count on products produced by Industrial Fiberglass Specialties being built in a professional, competent and knowledgeable manner.

You will find composite products of our manufacture in every major chemical company in the United States. We are aware of products that we built in the late 40’s and early 50’s that are still in service – providing the customer their lowest cost per year of service life.

Thank you for this opportunity to provide you more background information on Industrial Fiberglass Specialties, its history and capabilities. We take justifiable pride in our company’s past accomplishments. We look forward to continuing to be of service to your company, and your customers.
