New Columbia, PA/East Troy, WI – December 11, 2017 – Baker Furnace began 2017 poised for growth in a new location with 40,000 sf of manufacturing space. This past year the facility has seen record shipments of custom and standard units in a variety of configurations. Some of these units such as thermal oxidizers and afterburners will be used in the pollution control industry along with waste incineration units used to create waste-to-energy solutions for municipal, commercial and industrial clientele. Drop bottom furnaces, crucible furnaces, car bottom furnaces, and batch ovens will be used for a variety of applications in the heat treating, foundry, composites, and automotive industries.
