Heat Treating Capabilities
FBF Limited dba Queen City Steel Treating, Cincinnati, Ohio, began in 1922 when Edwin Stenger and Bernard Stenger realized the need for a commercial heat-treating operation in the Cincinnati area.
Three generations of the Stenger family members operated the company for 74 years. In 1996 FBF Limited (doing business as Queen City Steel Treating) took over the operation in its 100,000 square foot plant. The new ownership is comprised of three partners: Judith Rudy, Michael Fourney and William Fourney. Judy is the president and operating manager of the company.
One of the company’s current goals is to become an innovator in the changing roles of the metalworking industry. This is being achieved through participation with the industries it serves, as well as with the heat-treating industry. The management team at Queen City Steel Treating serves in local, as well as national, associations and societies, which include the Metal Treating Institute, Precision Metalforming Association and the American Society of Materials. Queen City Steel Treating is also an active research and development site for Super Systems, Inc., a leading manufacturer of controls automation for the thermal processing industry, also located in the greater Cincinnati area.
Queen City Steel Treating now operates a 2000 LBS continuous mesh belt furnace line, high volume carburizing pusher line, six integral quench furnaces complete with all companion equipment.
