AZCO INC. stands for “A to Z company” – a fitting name for a full service industrial construction and fabrication company based in the Fox Cities. AZCO traces its roots to 1949, when four individuals started the business in the Fox Cities region after identifying a need for quality mechanical contractors in the local pulp and paper industry. Today, AZCO – an employee-owned company – employs more than 200 hard-working individuals in the Fox Cities, plus anywhere between 700 to 1,000 union contractors nationwide, depending on project schedules. AZCO operates three locations in the region – two in Appleton and one in the Village of Fox Crossing (Town of Menasha). From New York to California, Florida to Alaska, this local industry leader provides heavy industrial construction and fabrication services across the country, as well as Canada. Its customers include Black & Veatch, Basin Electric Power Cooperative, ExxonMobil and Kiewit Power.
In the last year and a half alone, AZCO has grown 100%, and plans to continue to grow are not slowing down. In April, the company announced that it was moving its corporate headquarters to the former Institute of Paper Chemistry building (1025 E. South River Street) not far from downtown Appleton. The new, 31,000-square-foot facility officially opened its doors last month, providing much-needed, additional space to the growing company.
“As we began to consider expanding into a new corporate office, we never imagined leaving the Fox Cities,” John Trottier, president and CEO of AZCO, INC., said. “This region has allowed our company the opportunity to grow from a small contractor serving local paper manufacturers, to now working on $800 million power plant projects in Massachusetts. We are excited to continue to invest in this community and its people, and look forward to more growth in the future.”
