Don Frazier
Many in the industry are mourning the passing of Frazier Industrial Company founder, Donald 'Don' Frazier.

According to the company he founded, Frazier passed away peacefully in Arizona, surrounded by loved ones.

Frazier Industrial Company was founded in July 1946 and its first patent was a break-formed metal rack connector.

In 1975, Don relinquished day-to-day running of his company and assumed the role of chairman of the board.

His industry service included a stint as MHI chairman and he served on the MHI Roundtable Advisory Committee. He was awarded the Material Handling Education Foundation, Inc. (MHEFI) Reed-Apple Award in 1997 in recognition of his lifetime achievement in, and his extraordinary dedication to, the materials handling industry. In 2009, the Don Frazier Material Handling Technical Training Center was dedicated as a fully functioning materials handling laboratory educational program.

Frazier Industrial today has a network of 10 fabrication facilities across North America, with operations in Canada and Mexico.

Bill Mascharka, Frazier Industrial CEO, notes that the founder's "genuine passion for the industry and learning continues to beat within Frazier and across the industry".

"We are proud of our founding force, Don Frazier," he says, adding that Don's legacy continues through educational activity, "while his spirit shines with anyone who had the good fortune and opportunity to cross paths with him along his amazing journey".
