ChemGrout Celebrates 50th Year

ChemGrout owner and president Ben Schatzof is celebrating the company’s 50th year. Schatzof and his Joe continue to lead ChemGrout into the future and with the accelerated need for grouting worldwide, he has no plans on slowing down anytime soon. 

ChemGrout, located in LaGrange Park, Ill., is a leading manufacturer of cementitious grouting equipment, providing machines for use in industries such as mining, tunneling, highways, foundations, hydro-electric dams, bridges, environmental remediation and geotechnical.  During Schatzof’s rein at ChemGrout the company has grown from two employees to its current 32.

In the early years of ChemGrout, Schatzof performed field jobs all over the world, manufacturing grouting equipment for his own use. The equipment caught the eye of many experienced grouters who liked the simplicity and ease of operation. Soon, ChemGrout was manufacturing equipment for not only themselves, but for others in the growing grouting industry.  Then in 1978, with machine orders continuing to increase, the company decided to concentrate on the manufacturing end and phased out the field work.  The equipment line has steadily grown and evolved over the years, with many considering ChemGrout equipment the industry standard.
