About Onex, Inc.

Our Story

Onex began in 1965 as a supplier to the many foundries in the Erie, PA area. The original function of Onex was as a local stocking distributor of refractory products for several major refractory manufacturers.

In the 1980s, Onex branched out into all the major heat treating industries. As the number of foundries in Erie began to decline, Onex diversified into a broader offering of products and services such as: design and installation of refractory linings, combustion services, and shop fabrication. Onex became a “one stop shopping” source and a solutions provider for its growing and extensive customer base.
As the Company continued to grow in Erie, it also expanded its geographical reach by establishing regional offices and warehouses in Pittsburgh and Charlotte. While the majority of our work is done within 4-5 hour radius of our regional offices, we have successfully completed projects across the entire United States including Alaska and have also subcontracted on international projects.

Today, Onex is staffed with many experienced professionals to provide technical solutions for your refractory, combustion, and precast needs. Onex is committed to providing unique, cost effective solutions for our customers. We aim to deliver exceptional value by producing high quality products, optimizing processes, and eliminating waste in the total value stream.

Give our experts a call to let us develop ideas that benefit your operation, support your production process, and contribute to savings goals with a professional focus on the Total Cost of Ownership.

Our family run business has been expanding for over for 50 years. We started as a stocking distributor for the foundries in Erie PA and then have grown to become a competitive refractory and combustion service provider.
