Hercules Heat Treating Corporation, located in historic Brooklyn, New York, has served a sizeable portion of the defense and commercial aerospace industries for more than 65 years. Entrepreneurship and an eye on upcoming national prosperity led Joseph J. Rizzo – along with first cousins Angelo and Joseph G.Rizzo – to found the company in 1949.

Hercules remains owned and operated by several new generations of the Rizzo family. Today, two of the founders' sons – Anthony I. Rizzo and Joseph J. Rizzo Jr.– continue to run the company. And a third generation member, Anthony P. Rizzo, has joined ranks to insure continuity and growth as Hercules moves successfully forward into the twenty-first century.

Hercules leverages experience, leadership and an intrinsic understanding of our customers’ key concerns. We provide a unique combination of engineering expertise and cutting-edge technical capabilities that are solutions-oriented.

Most importantly, we place a strong emphasis on customer satisfaction. Hercules’ services are in greater demand than ever, as demonstrated by the voluminous work contracted by the United States military. Hercules’ proven performance record has earned our company the highest standing on approved supplier lists of many of the nation’s major aerospace manufacturers.
