Echo Engineering, a manufacturer of masking and protective components for a number of fluid power components, reached a milestone in 2016, celebrating its 50th anniversary. The company has grown from the dreams of founder John Offenbacker to a business with multiple U.S. locations, serving customers worldwide.
The company provides specialized protection including caps and plugs for hose fittings, fluid routing lines, exposed threads, accumulators, control valves, motors, hydraulic pumps, solenoid valves and manifold ports. It also offers specialized masking for cylinders, manifolds, motors, ports, pumps, valves, and seals.
John Offenbacker established Echo in 1966 in a garage in California. Prospering in Silicon Valley, Echo was a design and development company providing masking services for tech companies such as Hewlett Packard and Intel. It was quickly ranked by the San Jose Business Journal as one of the top 100 fastest-growing, privately owned companies in the Silicon Valley.
Since then, Echo moved its headquarters, changed its name and continued to provide a unique and educational experience for its customers. Now located in Indianapolis, Ind., Echo is led by CEO Kingdon Offenbacker, John Offenbacker’s son.
After becoming a market leader in high-temperature masking, Echo ventured into other technical arenas by customer demand. Introducing engineered rubber and plastic components in 2004, Echo followed by launching plastic protective enclosures in 2012. Today, Echo provides masking, hanging, protection, rubber, plastic and custom solutions ranging from small rubber grommets to large plastic enclosures to world-class organizations
“We do believe that we are unique and are continuing to change the standards and the expectations in the market,” said Kingdon Offenbacker, CEO. “I am so glad that our customers have realized that and are eager to partner with us to reach their goals and fulfill their needs.”
