PETRO-CHEM INDUSTRIES was founded in Chicago, Illinois, over 40 years ago by Bud Schroeder, an expert pipe fitter. We are a second generation business, now operated by Charlie Schroeder. Charlie, a Duke University graduate, has worked in the business since 1969. Through the years, we have manufactured, repaired, tested, and cleaned heat exchangers for the petro-chemical, steel, power, food processing, railroad, and nuclear power industries. Our customers are industrial and commercial, with a focus on Chicagoland, greater Midwest, and nationwide work. Then and today, we take pride in our technical skills, and our attention to detail.
In 1999, Petro-Chem Industries formed a strategic partnership with Ecker Erhardt Co., a nationwide leader in mechanical maintenance repair. Possessing a specialized 10 CFR Quality Control program, they specialize in maintenance repair for Nuclear Power Plants. Because of this partnership, we do business both as PETRO-CHEM INDUSTRIES and Petro-Chem-Ecker Erhardt. Due to our attention to detail, technical ability, and loyal customer base, we will soon be in business serving you for fifty years.
