Steven A. Schake founded Schake Industries in 1996. The company began operations as an industrial sandblasting and painting company, and has evolved into a manufacturing company constructing Spiral Silos, Storage Tanks, Pump Tanks, and a variety of Hydraulic, Lubrication, and Pneumatic Systems. For over fifteen years we have been a key supplier-partner to industry leaders in the Chemical, Defense, Mining, Power, Plastics, Water, and Steel segments. Our flexibility in meeting our customers' needs has let us enjoy continued and controlled growth over that time frame.
To better serve our customers, we continue to add new capabilities. They include heavy and light electro-mechanical assembly, fabrication, inspection, and our own transportation capabilities. Our ability to grit blast, bead blast, liquid paint, and powder coat hard to handle or complex parts remains an important core business. However, that core business is also the finishing touch to a process that includes design, procurement, production management, fabrication, and finished assembly of products from the ground up.
From its inception, Schake Industries was envisioned to be more than a painting company. We continue to invest in new equipment, talented employees, and technology to improve quality and lower costs, thereby ensuring that we can meet our customers’ business challenges now and in the future.
