The idea for Fortins originated during World War 2. While in Europe my Grandpa wrote letters home to his dad (my Great-Grandpa) sharing ideas of starting a business together. They opened Fortins in 1946. Although our business looks a lot different today, I believe our core remains the same. Our core is our team and what we do to help our customers. I have heard stories of my great-grandpa, our machinist, going into fields to repair water pumps because they had a problem that needed solving. I feel we still have that mindset today. We will work to solve our customers' problems.
