The Rothman Institute has nominated Cryofab (CSA CSM), a manufacturer of cryogenic equipment, for New Jersey Family Business of the Year for 2015, recognizing the company’s impact on the community and its perseverance, business success and commitment to family.
Three generations of Grillos have now helped build Cryofab into a thriving manufacturer with more than $10 million in annual revenue. In 1971, George Grillo founded Cryofab with Augustine DiGennaro and Peter Lepore. His son Vincent joined the company in 1972 and his brother Greg became the company’s first engineer a few years later. And now, with the recent addition of Grillo’s grandson Vincent Jr. as a sales engineer, the generational legacy continues.
Cryofab employs over 60 people in its home town of Kenilworth NJ, and continues to grow its business there. A cryogenic hose product line, for example, was introduced in 2014 and in 2015 Cryofab acquired California-based Cryocomp, a cryogenic accessories manufacturer.
