Greiner Industries Inc.


Greiner Industries Inc. was founded in April 1976. Frank Greiner started his own welding business in a one-car garage in Mount Joy, Pennsylvania. The company developed quickly, due to the quality and variety of work performed. In two years, Mr. Greiner constructed a 30,000 square foot shop along route 230 near Elizabethtown to consolidate the welding, custom metal fabrication, and mill righting operations.  

Mr. Greiner purchased his first crane in 1978 to provide turnkey service for his customers. The hydraulic crane, a 15-ton Galion, allowed the company to greatly enlarge its mill righting capabilities. In 1986, the company was again on the move. Mr. Greiner purchased more than 45 acres along route 283 between Mount Joy and Elizabethtown. An office, machine shop, and 60,000 square foot fabrication shop were erected; followed by another steel bay to make girders, duct work, pressure vessels, storage silos, and a myriad of other customer needs. In 1989, a separate blasting and painting facility and a vehicle maintenance garage were added.
