Company History

FurnaceIn 1966, Pillar forever changed the induction industry by introducing the first solid state power supply. The inventor of that first induction heating power supply, Phil Landis, continues to be a part of our success by actively mentoring our new generation of design engineers.

A decade later, Pillar introduced the first transistorized induction power supply, as the technology of the future. As you would expect, we are continually working on new designs to improve our products and get the most from the available technology. The result of our efforts is the broadest line of reliable products available in the industry today.


Ernie and Phil

In 1986, Pillar acquired Westinghouse Induction Systems, and in 1989, we acquired Cycle-Dyne from Lindberg, a unit of General Signal. These strategic acquisitions added breadth to our already extensive product line. We are uniquely positioned in the market, with products in every size and frequency rating.



In 1995, Pillar opened the Michigan Induction Center to service our Heat Treating customers. This facility is home to seasoned professionals in all aspects of induction heat treating. Whether it be production processing or prototype work, Pillar has the equipment and staff to meet your needs.


Pillar BrookfieldIn 1999, Pillar moved to its current facility in Brookfield, Wisconsin. The new facilities increased the capability for processing trial parts for customers and a facility that is capable of handling all of our customer needs.


In 2011, Ajax Tocco Magnethermic ("ATM") acquired the assets and intellectual property of Pillar Induction. The Pillar organization manufactures its core products including power supplies, melting, heating and heat treating systems in the Brookfield, Wisconsin location.
