Ekto Manufacturing Corporation

Ekto Manufacturing Corporation

EKTO Manufacturing Corporation was formed in 1968 by a group of engineers that had 10+ years of experience designing and construction military shelters for US armed forces known as S-141, S-250 and S-280 type enclosures. These type of shelters required lightweight designs, subjected to vigorous performance tests, both structural and environmental. With this experience and some foresight it was natural to start a custom shelter manufacturing company with a vision of supplying shelters not just for the United States Military, but to a variety of potential future applications.

Welcome to EKTO Manufacturing Corporation, Home of the original “Custom Equipment Shelter”. Leading the industry since 1968, let our 48+ years of experience benefit your next shelter project.

Originally designed for military applications, our shelters are lightweight and strong enough to handle the world’s worst environments. Our shelters are custom designed and built to fit your every need and application.

In the early 1970’s the booming mandated air monitoring requirements provided the new market for EKTO Manufacturing. In addition, these shelters provided a safe and efficient enclosure for the communication industry in a worldwide basis. Becoming the leader in the Air Monitoring Field and a well-known leading supplier to the commercial industry, government agencies, both local and from abroad realized the potential of our product. Having shelters on all 7 continents we have truly grown into a global company. We plan to continue this trend and are always looking for new ways to make an impact.

Smaller Enclosures or “Cabinets” were also an area that EKTO was able to specialize in.

Being a small family owned company we have been able to stay competitive and flexible. The experience gained, serving the industry over the years, has allowed us to evolve with the available technologies, to develop a state-of-the-art shelter construction and design.

We are looking forward to working with you to develop a custom equipment shelter or enclosure for your requirements.
