Celebrating 50 Years of Service


All of us at Superior Engineering are please to announce that we are now in our 50th Year of Service. It is an exciting year full of growth and we look forward to the future.

Established in 1962, Superior Engineering existed primarily to service the industrial Midwest. At that time, the bulk of Superior’s business resided in the prominent steel manufacturing industry, with occasional machine design, institutional, and oil refining work. Since then, it has grown and branched out into new fields, taken on new challenges, and established major clients nationwide.
