Our Story

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 USSR, Astro Pak bore its roots amid great space technological rivalry that created vast opportunity for the small precision cleaning contractor.  Securing various approvals to service all major missile manufacturers as well as other aerospace clients fueled the firm's desire to take their success from that industry into others.              

Fast forward to the early 2000's…  With the new millennium approaching, Ken Verheyen, President of Astro Pak, set his sights on an enormous feat - to guide Astro Pak to a position of industry leadership through delivering excellence.  Inspired by the leadership and culture Horst Schulz introduced at the Ritz Carlton, Ken took a similar approach and applied it to Astro Pak.  The objective?  To delight our customers and provide a service experience not found anywhere else. 

Astro Pak has grown considerably over the years, particularly during this last decade.  From opening new locations, offering new services and achieving the feat of becoming one of the largest and most respected surface treatment technology contractors in North America, we hope to sustain that growth while never losing sight of our most important purpose - delighting our customers through excellence.
