What was to become the Fulton Systems of today started in the early 1920’s in Chillicothe, Ohio.  The industry had a need for a better understanding, better equipment and superior operations of paper mill steam drying systems.  The early founders recognized these needs and made them their goals.  Through the years, mergers and acquisitions evolved Fulton Systems into what it is today…the recognized leader in steam system design.

Mission & Vision

Fulton Systems is driven by the needs of the industry–flawless performance, highest drying efficiency, low maintenance and trouble-free operation.  This is paramount in every Fulton Systems project, from the simplest Flow Indicator replacement to the largest dryer sections on the largest machines in the industry.

Our vision is to recognize that improvements never cease. Hence, we have our own research program focused on the continuous improvement of current technology plus a drive to constantly seek and incorporate new technologies.
