In 1870, a young Swedish craftsman named Gustav Falstrom established a metalworking shop in Passaic, New Jersey. Building upon proven techniques learned as an apprentice in Sweden, Falstrom became a major New Jersey supplier of fabricated metal products including such items as skylights, metal roofing, cornices, leaders and gutters.
By the 1890's, Falstrom’s skill and knowledge of industrial safety prompted requests for technical assistance from the New Jersey Department of Labor and from insurance companies. His special expertise aided in the establishment of initial standards for the construction of fireproof metal doors and windows. With his advice, specifications were set for machine safeguards, as well as for exhaust, ventilation, and dust control systems. Falstrom also took a leadership role in instituting industrial housekeeping, employee training, and technical research.
The early 20th century saw Falstrom Company pioneering products in the packaging field. It was one of the first metal fabricators in NewJersey to install an electric arc welder, an electric spot welder, and a large power brake for bending and forming sheet metal.
In 1922, to accommodate the new equipment and increasing sales, the Company established a newly built facility and offices on Falstrom Court in Passaic , a site perfectly suited near major highways serving the Northern New Jersey- Metro New York area.
The shop established by Gustav Falstrom in 1870, developed into a key provider of major fabricated and welded products -- from dust collection systems in the early 20th Century, to bomb racks in World War II, and a host of custom platforms up to the present, including radar platforms, conventional and nuclear plant panels, avionics test equipment, and naval enclosures.
Today, Falstrom Company is an industry leader primarily serving US defense needs with custom, battle proven, rugged enclosures and electronic assemblies from avionics to mission critical shipboard systems and platforms. Falstrom is ready for the challenge.
