Chapco, founded in the mid-’60s by Charlie Hurd and Al Pross, has evolved under the guidance of Robert (Bob) Weinstein and his son, Brian Weinstein, who serves as the current President. From its humble beginnings in a small machine shop on Denlar Drive, Chester, the company has grown to occupy 70,000 sq ft of advanced manufacturing space at Denlar Drive and Inspiration Lane.
Chapco is proud to be a vital part of Connecticut’s thriving manufacturing ecosystem. “Our enduring philosophy is ‘building partnerships, not just parts,'” says Weinstein.
