Burtek Incorporated was founded in 1987 by Bruce J. Burton as a consulting and engineering services contracting firm in Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan.
During this formative time, Burtek became a world-class military and commercial truck modifier and equipment up-fitter. Burtek utilized its engineering prowess to produce several tow tractors, cargo bodies, troop carriers, crane trucks, and integrated van bodies.
Concurrent with its growing competency in the truck field, Burtek also provided engineering services such as Finite Element Analysis (stress, static, dynamic, thermal, etc.,) Air Transportability Analysis, and HVAC design & implementation.
In 1993, Burtek’s steady growth necessitated relocation to a 12,600 sq ft facility in Warren, Michigan.
In 1996, Burtek expanded by purchasing the 9,700 sq ft building next door.
In 2000, Burtek moved into its current location in Chesterfield, Michigan. Our initial building, now known as building-1, has 50,000 sq ft of manufacturing space. In 2005, Burtek’s advancing growth rate led us to purchase the 55,000 sq ft building south of our initial building, known as building-2. In 2006, Burtek grew again, necessitating the addition of a third building to our ever expanding campus. Building-3 is a 50,000 sq ft facility located north of our initial building.
In 2008, due to our unyielding growth, Burtek added an additional 50,000 sq ft to the already existing floor space of Building-2. Burtek now has 205,000 sq ft of manufacturing space at its Chesterfield campus.
