A Look Back
In 1955, our sister company needed a temperature control system for their fast cycle plastic injection molding machines. To satisfy their heating application needs, they developed one of their own. Before long, manufacturers all over Buffalo heard about this new water system – this led to the creation of the Mokon division.
Mokon's commitment to product innovation led to a reputation as a market leader. Among our developments from this era was the first high temperature heat transfer hot oil system, as well as small standard water and oil systems.
As Mokon engineer's made more discoveries and refined their expertise, product development skyrocketed. In response to a customer request for a system that combines heating and cooling in one system – something completly absent from the market at the time – we created the Full Range. This combined system is still unique and represents a revolutionary change in the industry.
The 2000s were a busy time for our company. Mokon added central chillers, pump tanks, cooling towers, outdoor air-cooled central chiller systems, cold climate cooler systems, blown film coolers, and power and process control panels to our roster. Prior to the Great Recession in 2007, we diversified from the plastics market into other vertical industries, protecting our employees and creating additional jobs within our company.
With the new decade came more product lines and many improvements to our existing systems. We secured international certifi cations and began serving new industries in time to celebrate Mokon's 60th anniversary in 2015.
The 2020s have been a time for facing challenges and finding creative solutions. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Mokon has focused on serving the bio-pharma market to support vaccine development and distribution. Amid the resulting supply chain interruptions and skilled labor shortages, we have secured alternative suppliers, grown our quality assurance team, and developed in-depth training programs for new employees. We could not be more proud of how our team has overcome these obstacles, and we look forward to continuing our legacy of innovation for years to come.
