60 Years of Excellence
Friendly service. Unparalleled expertise. Advanced cleaning processes. Astro Pak.
Originally founded in 1959 by Carl Verheyen and Jim St. Clair during the accelerating space race between the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. , Astro Pak bore its roots amid the great space technological rivalry that created vast opportunity for the small precision cleaning contractor. Providing services from the first office in Southern California, Astro Pak secured various approvals to precision clean components and hardware for all major missile manufacturers as well as other aerospace clients, which fueled the firms desire to take their chemically cleaning success from the Aerospace industry into several other sectors.
Years later, Carl’s son, Ken Verheyen, became the CEO of Astro Pak and set his sights on an enormous feat – to guide Astro Pak to a position of industry leadership through delivering excellence. To achieve this, Mr. Verheyen was driven to create a great experience for his employees and customers by providing quality service experience.
Astro Pak has grown considerably over the years, particularly during this last decade. From opening new locations, offering new services and becoming one of the largest and most respected precision cleaning & surface treatment technology contractors in North America, Astro Pak hopes to sustain that growth while never losing sight of our most important purpose – delighting our employees customers through a remarkable excellence.
