Tec-Hackett was founded in 1962, however, our roots in the air and hydraulic industry stretch back to the late 1940’s.

In 1962, the original companies that were working together, decided to join forces and become what is today- Tec-Hackett, Inc.  In our early years, we mainly represented both hydraulic and pneumatic equipment but we have grown into much more.

In 1976, we started our custom hydraulic power unit design and build department. We have grown our business from renting out the neighbor’s workshop in 1976 to our current 30,000 square foot facility in Fort Wayne, IN.

In the early 80’s, we began distributing electrical products which has grown from early versions of PLC’s to our present list of electrical suppliers.  We can supply everything from switches to VFD’s to starters to HMI’s and all other related industrial electrical products for your plant.

As a full-service factory automation solutions provider, Tec-Hackett has proven innovation and experience to meet your project needs.
