Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the board Harry
Palmer incorporated Bellows Systems, Inc. in March 1980. Bellows Systemsí
business and product roots can be traced back as far as 1894.
In 1980 Palmer and his partner Dick Wells
bought the assets of Circle Weld Company, Circle Bellows and Woolley Bellows
from Chromalloy American Corporation. These companies had been in business
in California and Texas since 1951. This purchase continued the tradition
of a high-grade product line of manifolds for large industrial internal
combustion engines; bellows expansion joints, and metal hoses for numerous
worldwide applications. Bellows Systems expanded its expansion joint
technology in 1986 through the purchase of Kopperman Industries of
Norristown, Pennsylvania. Kopperman Industries began operations in Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania in 1894. All the assets and engineering data were moved to the
Odessa, Texas corporate headquarters. Bellows Systems expanded its ability to meet
its customerís needs by starting a Custom Fabrication Department in the fall
of 2001. This department is currently working with companies in the
generation industry and the gas and oil industries.
Systems looks forward to working with you to meet your special needs.
