Fred Koch and L. E. Winkler formed the Winkler-Koch Engineering Company in 1925 to design and supervise installation of refining equipment. Fred Koch then formed Koch Engineering in 1945. From the initial FLEXITRAY® valve tray, the product line expanded over time to include additional tray designs, tower packings, mist eliminators, and pollution control equipment. Glitsch, Inc. was originally founded by Fritz W. Glitsch, Sr. in 1912 as a machine shop. The first GLITSCH ''Truss-Type'' Bubble Cap Trays were designed, constructed, and placed into service in January 1939. The simplicity and adaptability of these trays opened up numerous opportunities for customers worldwide and led to the development of new tray designs.


In 1997, Koch-Glitsch was formed when these two respected competitors combined their technologies, products, and services to become the global leader in developing, engineering, designing, and manufacturing conventional and high performance mass transfer, mist elimination, and liquid-liquid separation equipment. Today, Koch-Glitsch products and tower designs set the standard worldwide.


Headquartered in Wichita, Kansas, Koch-Glitsch continues to grow through the design and commercialization of innovative products, strategic acquisitions, and its focus on operational excellence. Koch-Glitsch has offices in 18 countries so our customers can count on a quick response to any inquiry.


Koch-Glitsch's industry leadership can also be attributed to its on-going commitment to research and development. Koch-Glitsch holds an impressive number of patents and maintains state of the art facilities to carry out distillation and mist elimination studies on a wide variety of equipment, compounds, and mixtures. Koch-Glitsch also has the largest distillation pilot plant and distributor test stand in the world on site at its Wichita headquarters.
