About Vulcan


We’re Vulcan, proven leaders in wastewater screening equipment. And we don’t take our leadership role lightly.

Founded in 1975 as Vul-Tech Manufacturing by Whitey and Fran Mensching, our beginnings were humble, as in back-warehouse-manufacturing humble. Three years and three employees later, we moved from Omaha, Neb., to Magnolia, Iowa; changed our name to Vulcan Industries, Inc.; and developed a complete line of wastewater screening equipment. We’re so glad we did.

Today, our team of 50 is housed in a 40,000-square foot facility in Missouri Valley, Iowa, and our screening equipment delivers clean, safe water to 900+ cities (and counting) around the world.

Bring on the future.
