OUR HISTORY

2016 With nearly 100 years of combined experience providing turnkey anodizing and plating systems, Price-Koch Industries and Walgren Company have joined the KOCH Team as PRICEWalgren, a division of George Koch Sons.

With the addition of PRICEWalgren, KOCH provides a complete range of automated surface finishing systems, including Electrocoat, Powder, Liquid, Anodizing and Plating Systems on all major substrates worldwide.

2013 George Koch Sons, another privately-held, family-owned company with a long history of helping make customers successful, acquired Price Industries.

1983 Bob Price established Price Industries to provide custom fabricating for construction and excavating companies. The very first project included automated hoists. Price Industries has provided automated systems requiring as many as 26 hoists in a wide variety of industries.
