Complete Heat Treating Acquires Wisconsin Steel Assets

Co-owners of Complete Heat Treating Jake (left) and T.J. Dolhun (right) continue the tradition of their grandfather, Ted Dolhun, Sr., who began Wisconsin Steel in 1939.

Complete Heat Treating operates 10 furnaces. The gas-fired car bottom furnace shown features 1,000,000 lb. capacity and a workspace measuring 53' x 22' x 14', with operating temperatures to 2,150 �F. Quench tank is in foreground.

Complete Heat Treating, LLC has completed its acquisition of all assets and equipment of the former Wisconsin Steel Industries, Inc. "The combined companies have 75 years of service in the metalworking industry and offer substantial heat treating and related capabilities," said a company spokesperson.

The purchase of Wisconsin Steel was made by Complete in 2011, with the relocation of all equipment and key personnel having now concluded. All equipment from both companies has been consolidated at the 65,000 sq. ft. Complete facility in Milwaukee.

A highlight is a gas-fired car bottom furnace with a 53' x 22' x 14' workspace, powered by 40,000,000 BTUs with a 1,000,000 lb. load capacity and operating temperatures to 2,150 F max.

Equipment and services offered include five car bottom furnaces, five box furnaces, heavy-duty polymer and water quench tanks, stress relieving, sand blasting, prime and finish painting, annealing, normalizing, BHN inspection, straightening, saw cutting of test specimens, tractor/trailer fleet and full compliance with ISO 9001 certification standards. Workpieces up to 50 tons are routinely processed using new and existing crane equipment.

Customers for this commercial heat treater include many of the Midwest's leading builders of farm equipment, mining equipment, materials handling equipment, rail systems, construction equipment, power generation, oil/gas and other machinery.

Wisconsin Steel was established in 1939 by Ted Dolhun, Sr., grandfather to the current owners of Complete.
