Aactron has come a long way since Mitchell Kafarski founded the business in 1965. Growth escalated as the company began phosphating for the military and automotive industries. An addition was constructed the following decade to accommodate an increase in customers and services.
None of this success would have been possible without the dedication and innovation of Aactron’s employees. Labor Day reminds us to acknowledge the hardworking people of America. We wouldn’t be who we are without you. Thank you for everything you do.
Mitchell Kafarski opened Aactron, Inc. in Madison Heights, Michigan in 1965 after spending most of his life in the plating industry. At first the company was committed to phosphating for the automotive, military and similar industries but since expanded its capabilities and sectors to include aerospace, mining/drilling and defense.
Aactron wants to take this time to thank the American labor force that made these dreams come to fruition. It’s with these efforts that Aactron is what it is today.
Today and everyday we thank you for your service.
