Superior Boiler Works, Inc. is celebrating 100 years as a continuously operating business. The business began as Superior Welding Shop in Hutchinson Kansas, in 1917. Superior Welding trained welding students during WWII and graduated more than 200 students. The company also began to engineer and do work with boilers and pressure vessels, eventually changing its name to Superior Boiler Works.
“We’re extremely excited to celebrate our centennial throughout 2017,” said Superior Boiler Works CEO Doug Wright. “This is a monumental milestone. Very few companies find the right formula to make it this long, and we have. It’s a testament to our entire team of employees now and before us.”
To celebrate, the company plans several events throughout the year involving employees, customers and friends of the company.
