Elkhart Products Corporation (EPC) is located in Elkhart, Indiana – the heart of the Midwest. From its start in 1940 as a small manufacturer of screw machine products, EPC has built a reputation for quality products and quality personnel. As the company began to expand in the early 1950s and became a fabricator of various copper and aluminum tubular components, it also became known for its innovation and service.
Expansion continued with the purchase of machinery from Chase Brass and Copper Company in the late ’50s and wrot copper tube fittings for the plumbing, air conditioning and refrigeration industries were added to the product line. Growth continued with the construction of plants in Fayetteville, Arkansas in 1962 and in Geneva, Indiana in 1969.
Today, EPC is part of Aalberts Industries N.V. and enjoys the distinction of being one of the world’s largest manufacturers of wrot copper fittings. It’s also recognized as a versatile supplier of custom fabricated tubular products to original equipment manufacturers in several industries, including automotive and air conditioning and refrigeration.
Over the last five years, EPC has branched into engineered fittings. EPC engineered push-fit fitting brands include TECTITE™ and CopperLOC™. In 2011, we introduced APOLLOPRESS® press-fit fittings and valves. APOLLOPRESS® products are manufactured in the USA by EPC and Apollo Valves. Together, we bring you the most extensive line of quality American Made press-fit products.
