About Abanaki

Dear Colleagues,

In 1949, two entrepreneurs pioneering in pollution control founded a company which later became Abanaki Corporation. Their innovative work played a significant role in harnessing powerful new technologies to aid in pollution control for the manufacturing industry.

The company has never lost touch with its heritage of innovation, discovery and environmental stewardship. Through the years, Abanaki has emerged as the world leader in oil skimming solutions, serving industries as diverse as iron and steel, wastewater, paper, food processing, automotive, environmental remediation and recycling. With a guiding principle that has become a corporate motto, “Clean Our World” is the philosophy we have in mind when servicing our customers.

While we have devoted nearly our entire product line to the control of oil contamination across various industries, the goal of Abanaki Corporation to “Clean Our World” goes beyond our line of products. Abanaki has an extensive in-house reuse/recycle program in place and employees are encouraged to start their own recycling plans at home.

Today, Abanaki continues in its search for new technology to combat pollution in the manufacturing world. In January of 2008, Tom Hobson purchased Aerodyne, a company that has been manufacturing dust collection products for over 60 years. With products ranging from large dust collection systems, to low-cost, low-maintenance materials handling valves, the addition of Aerodyne gives Abanaki yet another tool to “Clean our World.”

Based out of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, our state-of-the-art facility ensures Abanaki will meet current and future customer needs with an exciting generation of products that will become the industry standard for performance, productivity and pollution control.

This is truly an exciting time at Abanaki Corporation. We look forward to a dynamic new millennium, not only for this company, but for our most valued partners—our customers, many who have been with us since the 1960s. We appreciate their business, and look forward to serving our new partners as well.
