Heritage Custom Fabricators started in the oilfield business working over drilling rigs, mud pumps, pumping units and injection pumps. We manufactured gears for O.E.M.’s – National Supply, Bethlehem Supply & Oilwell which included herringbone, helical and spur gears up to 84″ diameter and 1-1/2 Diametrical pitch. In 1986, the oil business collapsed and we started doing business with steel companies – Northwestern Steel & Wire, IPSCO Steel, Bethlehem Steel, U.S. Steel and A.K. Steel. In 1998, we built 4 utility cars for Indiana Harbor Coke Company for Raytheon Engineers & Constructors at East Chicago.
