When Cascade TEK builds laboratory and vacuum ovens, it makes sure that it only uses the best components. This ensures the Cornelius, Ore.-based company helps its clients avoid the crushing costs of maintenance and downtime.

Cascade TEK’s founder, Doug Barrett, instilled the company with these values when it started operations in 1992. “He wanted to have quality components and never have a customer support team answer why something didn’t work,” Sales Manager of Custom Solutions Jeremy McDonald explains.

This focus makes the brand particularly appealing to industrial clients. “They don’t want to have to deal with downtime,” he states, adding that Cascade TEK rarely has to provide customer support or honor a warranty.
