Emigrating from Slovakia in the early 1900s, the Kovatch family brought a resilient work ethic to their new home in the United States.
As founder, Frank Kovatch worked 22 years for an investment casting foundry in Cleveland. A dreamer, a doer, and a risk taker, he and three brothers decided to start their own company. The Kovatch brothers began with used equipment and a strong faith, struggling at first in a small block and a metal building in Akron, Ohio in 1976.
Frank was undeterred. In 1984, Kovatch Castings landed significant new business and was able to buy its first pieces of new equipment. The company had turned a corner. Frank’s dream was realized in 1991 when Kovatch Castings moved into a brand new building in Uniontown, Ohio (Green).
