We are a family business that is now run by the fourth generation. The pride runs deep in our work, the same as it did almost 100 years ago. Today, we still emphasize honest principles and well-engineered products at the best possible prices. Most importantly, we look at everything from the customers’ perspective. Only in this way will our customers have the confidence that their needs will be understood and met.
In 1918, our great-grandfather, William Christopher Martin, founded W.C. Martin & Son Machine Shop and Welding near Boonville, Missouri. Originally, the company engineered, designed, and built machines and appliance parts for various industrial companies located in the Mid-West. However, in 1982, the company enlarged its production capabilities and dedicated its resources to the development of products for the communications industry. Rapid expansion required the company to incorporate in that same year. In 2010 Chouteau Fabricating and GlenMartin became two separate companies. Chouteau focuses on steel fabrication and GlenMartin on engineering and integration of communications related products.
Chouteau fully embraces, and aggressively invests in innovation. Our aspiration is to distinctively serve customers. A necessary condition to accomplish this is a steady stream of innovative products and services. We believe the continued improvement of current offerings and the strategic development of new ones is a key to our continued growth and success.
