Derrick Company, Inc.

We do the BIG STUFF… and more!

Derrick Company has been providing metal heat-treating services throughout the United States and Canada since 1943.  At Derrick we specialize in processing VERY LARGE PARTS!  Our large 14 ft. x 14 ft. x 44 ft. long furnace, with door openings on each end, gives us the ability to process parts up to 100 ft. long & 100,000 lbs.   While we are indeed experts at processing large parts/loads, we also process small and medium size parts on a regular basis (100 lbs.+).

Other furnaces/ovens at Derrick range in size from our large 12 ft. x 12 ft. x 35 ft. long car-bed furnace, down to our smallest 4 ft. x 4 ft. x 6 ft. automatic, electric oven. Our quenching capabilities include forced air, water, boiling water and press quench.

In Addition to metal heat treating, Derrick Company also provides Abrasive Blasting and Industrial Painting services on very large, medium and small parts.
