The History of Vulcan Catalytic
Were all about saving energy!
Vulcan Catalytic Systems was created in the USA an 1991. Its founder, Michael J Chapman, has worked in the plastics industry since 1972. During the 1980's he came across the Catalytic Process and quickly realised its potential within the finishing industry. After working with the then main manufacturer of heater panels in the USA, Mike realised that there was further untapped development potential, and thus formed Vulcan. Now after 17 years, much development, testing and a string of US Patents to his name, Vulcan Catalytic UK has been formed in his native Britain. Now well established, Vulcan Catalytic UK provides a range of services to the UK and Europe.
