Our History

For over 65 years, WireTech Fabricators, Inc. has built a reputation for providing high quality, low cost wire fabrications to industries. WireTech Fabricators was originally founded as the Economy Electric Lantern Company in the 1940s. The Economy Electric Lantern Company mass produced hand-held lanterns for the U.S. Government and local area shipbuilders. These lanterns continued to be manufactured by the company well into the 1990s.

In 1963, the Economy Electric Lantern Company was purchased by the Baudhuin family and renamed Dorco Manufacturing. At the time of purchase, Dorco Manufacturing resided in a 5,000 square foot building and employed five people three days per week. Dorco began to nationally market household items such as casserole dish stands, Lazy Susan's and candelabras produced from wire material. As these products were introduced to the market, customer demand for engineered custom wire form components allowed the company to branch out into more commercial products.
In the mid 1980s, Dorco Manufacturing had expanded to its current 50,000 square foot facility employing 100 people and had become a major employer in the Sturgeon Bay area. In 1992, the company was purchased by Tom Lardinois and Mike Baudhuin. The company quickly made improvements to the production equipment and process and was registered as ISO 9002 certified in 1997. Dorco Manufacturing changed its name to WireTech Fabricators in August 1998. Today, WireTech Fabricators uses the best technology available. WireTech Fabricators continues to be the leading supplier of custom fabricated wire products to industries such as lawn and garden, office furniture, food service, automotive and appliances.
