Industrial Steel & Boiler Services, Inc. was incorporated in 1991 by William O'Neil and Gayle Rae. The original plant in West Springfield, Massachusetts proved too small to handle the business growth and diversity. In 1998 the company moved to Chicopee, Massachusetts to a larger facility of 30,000 square feet that includes a 10 ton overhead crane.
Our customer base has grown over the years and includes hospitals, colleges, schools, utility plants, ships, industrial plants, paper mills, churches, and numerous other industries. We provide services throughout New England, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and beyond as needed. Work is performed by technicians either at our facility or at the customers site. Technicians are cross trained in several service areas offered by the company. Safety programs are in effect and include lockout tagout, confined space entry, etc. While all groups of the company provide their particular areas of expertise, they are closely connected to the boiler plant itself.
