Formerly known as Sentry Company, the business officially changed its name to VakCo in 2022 to reflect its exclusive new focus on heat-treating containers and wraps.

“We’re optimistic about the future of VakCo and continue to expand our commitment to the industries we serve. Accordingly, we felt it was time for a new website that better reflects that commitment and makes it easier for our industrial customers to do business with us”, said Thomas Crocker, Owner and President.

Representing the third generation of family ownership since the business was founded by his grandfather in 1921, Crocker has continued the company’s path of growth and change. Initially a manufacturer of small tool room heat treating furnaces and quench systems, the company is now focused solely on manufacturing heat treating containers and wraps.
