Who We Are
For over 50 years, Onex has been a staple in the Erie community as well as the manufacturing industry. Onex began as a refractory distributor to the local foundries and grew to serve the heat treating industry. Onex then became a custom furnace manufacturer that now designs, fabricates and services American made products for distribution across the U.S with its team of 100% employee-owners.

Meet Our Employee-Owners
On July 15, 2020 Ashleigh and Drew Walters sold the business to their employees in an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) to reward their employees and enhance company culture.
“When we took over ownership, we wanted to make a difference in our community by supporting local manufacturers and helping rebuild Erie from the inside out. Our goal has always been to revitalize American manufacturing and inspire people to pursue manufacturing careers. With this ESOP, we are strengthening commitments within our community and with our employees.” -Ashleigh Walters
The pay raise was great, but this 27-year-old Erie man likes the job even better.
Once led through fear, Onex, an Erie manufacturing company, reinvents itself.
Onex has transitioned to an ESOP, making the company a 100% employee-owned business.
