Wellman’s roots can be traced to the General Electric Company’s Industrial Heating Department which moved its operation from Schenectady, New York, to Shelbyville, Indiana, in 1955. In 1979, Wellman plc, a British company, purchased the Shelbyville operations from GE, renamed it Wellman Furnaces Inc. and retained all personnel for the design, manufacture and marketing of Industrial Heating Equipment. In 1988, the business was sold to the managers of the Shelbyville facility, who ran the Furnace company along with seven other purchased Wellman companies until 2003.
In 2003, Wellman Furnaces, Inc.’s ownership changed to its current status under Precious Technology Group, LLC. Precious Technology Group has transitioned Wellman Furnaces, Inc. into a versatile and capable entity able to carry on the responsibility entrusted to us by our customers.
