CELEBRATING 35 YEARS

Decades of Drive & Ingenuity

This June 2020 marks 35 years of DenTech being in business, and to celebrate, we are taking a moment to look down memory lane at the events that got us here today.

At the foundation was a small group of hardworking problem solvers bearing a can-do attitude, which has only grown to be a much larger group with the same philosophy; “yeah, we can do that!” Because of this, we expanded our capabilities and grew from 15 to 133 employees, many of them still with us since the day we started. This approach helped us develop from a small machine shop to handling just about everything in the industrial mechanical landscape. We evolved from dust collection sales into design, installation, and service of complete systems. Then arose the need for metal fabrication and electrical control panels, and we delivered. Always itching to innovate, we created our own control panel HMI, AyrDyne, and kept that ball rolling into automation, and now robotics. Today, we are providing complete process solutions for our manufacturing and industrial customers so that they can operate safely and efficiently. Our customers have come to count on us for comprehensive start to finish projects with our team. As for this team; we are a group of diverse problem solvers that show up each day with a fascination for the industries served and a dedication like no other. Without them, none of this would be possible.

Check out DenTech’s story in more detail below, and here’s to the next 35! We’re happier than ever we get to continue doing what we love helping our customers’ businesses thrive.
