Dunham Products was founded in 1946 by Joseph F. Klukan, Sr. in a small two-car garage. Equipped with a thread roller and his expert mechanical skills, Klukan began handling overflow work from his employer during World War II, producing studs for the aircraft fuel pump industry. After the war ended, Dunham maintained this symbiotic relationship and continued to expand. In 1948, Joseph constructed a building to house the growing company on Dunham Road, for which the company is named.
Joseph F. Klukan, Sr. built Dunham Products on one simple, but seemingly rare, principle: give the customer more than they expect by going the extra distance to exceed their expectations. Since its founding, Dunham Products has been unwavering in delivering uncompromised quality and value to each and every customer.
A tradition of strength runs deep in the DNA and culture of the company, thanks to the incredibly inventive and innovative mechanical, production and engineering talent in our facility, honed through years of experience. Today, Dunham Products is led by the third generation of the Klukan family, but the goal remains the same: to get it done. It’s The Dunham Way.
From our humble beginnings in a cramped two-car garage to our modern 40,000 square foot facility, we’re proud to say that our alma mater is Old School, and there’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, it’s a darn good school!
