History of S&B

Stelter & Brinck was founded by Henry Stelter & Larry Brinck. S&B was started in 1922 as a manufacturer’s representative agency, selling the first burners and combustion parts. Over time, Stelter & Brinck came to be recognized for their engineering know-how, high quality products and customer service. This led S&B’s numerous customers to look to them for not only their engineering expertise and combustion components, but for equipment sub-assemblies as well. Thus began Stelter & Brinck’s evolution from a manufacturing representative to an original equipment manufacturer.

While Stelter & Brinck still provided parts, S&B began designing and manufacturing larger, more complex equipment in the early 1970’s. It was in 1990’s that S&B introduced combustion field services.

Stelter & Brinck has certainly come a long way, and is looking forward to the future.
