Company History

On the Cutting Edge... for Over Eighty Years

Headquartered in Porter, Maine, USA, Vulcan was formed in 1927 to serve the process and industrial heating equipment markets with innovative heating solutions. Through the years we have developed many new technologies, and acquired others.

We are one of only a few manufacturers with a full complement of metal-sheathed heaters, temperature sensors, temperature control products and precision calibration services. Many of our temperature measurement products are engineered into equipment at the world's leading semiconductor companies. Other areas of temperature sensor expertise include ultra-high temperature materials processes and other advanced metallurgical applications.

Through our broad range of heating and sensing technologies we offer unique opportunities to engineer integrated solutions that incorporate our multiple products. These engineered integrated solutions can result in substantial cost savings, space savings, and/or weight reduction.

What else sets us apart from the competition? While other companies may say they have the product "suitable" for your application, we take it one step further. We will use our engineering experience, manufacturing capabilities, and resources to develop the total "engineered" solution for your process or product. In fact, better than 80% of the products we currently manufacture are custom engineered for a specific purpose.

Advanced Solutions for the Most Demanding Industries

We routinely engineer solutions for the most complex requirements, and many of our products can be applied into a variety of products or processes, while others are uniquely designed for a specific purpose. Our diverse product capabilities support a broad range of industries and applications, including:

  • Advanced Materials Sciences
  • Aerospace
  • Power Generation
  • Alternative Energies
  • Defense
  • High Reliability Industrial
  • Semiconductor
  • Industrial Process Heating
  • Medical
  • Life Sciences
  • Packaging
  • Commercial Heating
