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.
