SINCE 1970, WHEN BASIC INDUSTRIES WAS FOUNDED BY JOHN R.
HOTTENROTT, WE HAVE BEEN SPECIALIZING IN EXCEEDING THE
DEMANDS OF OUR CUSTOMERS.   SINCE THE BUILDING OF THE
ORIGINAL SHOP IN 1970, BASIC INDUSTRIES, (A DIVISION OF THE
HOTTENROTT COMPANY, INC.) HAS STRIVED TO ACHIEVE MORE FOR
ITS CLIENTS.  THE COMPANY HAS GROWN AND CHANGED WITH THE
TIMES.  FROM THE ORIGINAL 1,800 SQUARE FOOT CINDER BLOCK
SHOP THAT SPECIALIZED IN TOOL AND DIE.  TO THE 6,336 SQUARE
FOOT FACILITY AT THE FOUNDING SITE THAT CONTAINS THE
PRESENT DAYS OPERATION.   WITH 7 EMPLOYEES, THE COMPANY
HAS USED PERSONAL CONTACT TO DISCUSS THEIR CLIENTS NEEDS.  
WITH THE ONE-ON-ONE CONTACT THAT IS PROVIDED BY THE STAFF,
IT ALLOWS BASIC INDUSTRIES TO EFFECTIVELY DELIVER BETTER
QUALITY WORK ON SCHEDULE.   BASIC INDUSTRIES IS LOCATED
SOUTH OF ST. LOUIS, MO ON STATE ROUTE 159 IN HECKER, IL.  WE
HAVE BEEN IN BUSINESS FOR 40 YEARS AND COUNTING AND WE
WOULD LIKE TO GIVE YOU A BID ON YOUR NEXT REPAIR ORDER OR
NEW ROLLER ORDER.  WE ARE SURE YOU WILL BE PLEASED WITH
OUR QUALITY OF WORK AND COMPETITIVE PRICING.
