CECO has made tremendous strides in the 40 years since its humble beginnings in the Hotze garage. CECO now enjoys more than 100,000 sq ft of repair and manufacturing space, state-of-the-art manufacturing and machining centers, and two precision repair facilities.
Medium-sized and still family-owned and -operated, CECO takes pride in its workforce of intelligent, well-trained, and responsive associates who derive real satisfaction from a job well done. CECO carries on Ernie Hotze's stewardship by using the time-proven idea of customer satisfaction as its guide.
CECO associates reflect this foundation by providing personalized service and quality adapted to each customer's needs. This dedication allows CECO to be the largest independent manufacturer of compressor parts and engine replacement parts in the United States and to continue to grow. In addition to the Houston headquarters, the CECO Polymer facility manufactures a full line of piston rings, rider rings and rod packing, using specialty material blends to fit any application, environment or gas pressure. A diverse inventory of raw materials is in stock, ready for emergency, overnight production.
CECO and the Hotze families said goodbye to Ernest Hotze in 1995. While his presence is missed, four of his sons and the first of the next generation of Hotzes continue to carry on his legacy and focus on CECO's future. The Hotzes believe that CECO's family of companies and subsidiaries complement CECO's compressor and engine replacement parts business while offering new, innovative technologies for the future. CECO and the Hotze family plan to fill customers' needs with unsurpassed service and the highest quality products for many years to come.
