Jenfab Cleaning Solutions was founded in 1960—the year of Muhammad Ali’s first professional fight, Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho,” the establishment of the Dallas Cowboys and John F. Kennedy’s presidential election. Our first machine was a cleaning system for rocket rails. (Did we mention the Space Race?) In 1962, our company was awarded a contract to manufacture shipping cradles for the fuel rails used in the Saturn V Missile. How were these aluminum fuel rails going to be cleaned before shipping? At the time, cleaning metal parts with chlorinated solvents, such as mineral spirits (IFI) and trichloroethylene (TCE), was the standard. Yet because of the product’s nature, it was decided that an aqueous solution made of alkaline cleaner and water would be better. Jenfab fabricated its first cleaning system for the missile’s fuel rails in 1963. After that project, the business shifted from welding fabrication to building aqueous parts washing systems. By 1967, Jenfab was primarily building parts washers.
Since then, Jenfab has continued to produce aqueous parts washers for customers that advance our country, like aerospace, ammunition, automotive and medical part manufacturers. We’ve grown to be one of the largest and most innovative parts washer manufacturers in the United States. In 2013, JRI Industries merged with Jenfab to offer the most complete line of aqueous cleaning systems available today. For the next few years, the company was known as JRI/Jenfab. In 2019, we consolidated and became Jenfab Cleaning Solutions.
