About Us

In 1942, as part of the emerging “Greatest Generation”, Carl Bertsche Sr. completed his engineering degree at the University of Cincinnati and was commissioned as 2nd Lt. in the U. S. Army. Carl faithfully served his country in Europe, and returned home after WW2. He began working for Precision Welder and Flexopress Company in Cincinnati, Ohio and soon became their chief engineer.

At Precision, Carl was surrounded by talented peers. Since he possessed both talent and initiative himself, Carl decided to strike out and start his own company. In 1953, Production Engineering was founded with the goal of providing reliable production equipment to key manufacturing industries in the tristate area of Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky. Carl Sr. retired in 1988.

In 1977 Carl Bertsche Jr. joined the company after earning an engineering degree at the University of Cincinnati and working for the International Division of Procter & Gamble for 5 years. Carl Jr. has led our company’s transition into becoming a distributor of reliable chilling equipment. He is the current president of Production Engineering.

In 2011, John Bertsche joined Production Engineering after earning a business degree at Cedarville University. John is our vice-president and responsible for website development, internet marketing, as well as new customer development. Today we are a leading distributor for the most reliable industrial water chilling equipment available.
