About Onex, Inc.

Our Story

Onex History

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 major refractory manufacturers. Then, in the 1980’s, Onex branched out to serve the heat treating industries by becoming a “one stop shopping” source and a solutions provider for its growing extensive customer base. In 1992, our reach broadened even more as we started building furnaces under our Blue Diamond Brand. As the company continued to grow in Erie, it also expanded its geographical reach by establishing regional offices and warehouses in Pittsburgh. 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.
