Our History

Atmosphere Furnace Company was established in 1962.

In October of 1996, we acquired Pacific Industrial Furnace Co. (PIFCO), a division of Detrex, and consolidated their operations with ours in Wixom, Michigan. PIFCO was established in 1930 and has been very strong in the foundry, forge and aluminum industries.

In April of 1999, we acquired Therm Alliance, a privately owned company located in Detroit, Michigan. Therm Alliance was established in 1985, but the family managing the company has been in the heat treat business since 1914.

In March of 2000, AFC purchased Holcroft, a privately held furnace company located in Livonia, Michigan. Holcroft has been building furnaces since 1916.

AFC-Holcroft continues to support each and every piece of equipment produced under the banner of any of our acquired companies. We store and maintain thousands of original design drawings dating back to the early 1900's, and our parts and service team can advise you of any design improvements that have been implemented since the installation of your furnace equipment, insuring that you have the safest, most efficient repair/replacement solution.

Even though each of our acquired companies (Holcroft, PIFCO, Therm Alliance, Dow Furnace, Standard Fuel Engineering) will continue to service their respective customers as they have done in the past, our products are marketed under the name of AFC-Holcroft.
