McElroy began operations in the 1950's and has grown from a two person startup in an Oklahoma garage, to the industry leader in the design and manufacture of machinery to produce finned tubes. Our first finning equipment was introduced in 1961 and has evolved to the digitally controlled No. 5 Machine which includes many labor saving options to simplify and reduce the cost of the customer's plant operations. The name McElroy is recognized worldwide as the most reliable, rugged, versatile, and technically advanced equipment in the market place.
McElroy's focus on innovation has further driven our growth. We have expanded countless times over our 55 plus years in business. Each expansion had one primary aim—gain physical space needed to bring our inventions to life and better meet our customers' demands. In 2007, McElroy saw an expansion that more than doubled our facility's manufacturing floor space. Our new manufacturing plant added an additional 8 acres of land and 110,000 square feet of open floor plan contained under one roof.
In addition to our new facility, we are in the final stages of a multimillion dollar renovation to our existing facilities. The Fintube assembly area has undergone physical upgrades to improve our operations and increase our capacity. Our investment in the state-of-the-art technology and commitment to quality work translates into productivity in your plant. Our commitment to stand behind our equipment and our customers remains steadfast. Beginning in 2012 McElroy finned tube products will be offered through our expanding international network of offices. These locations will stock parts and offer service to our customers around the globe.
