History & Mission

Shick was founded in 1956 as Shick Tube-Veyor Corporation by William F. Ungashick. Mr. Ungashick, an aeronautical engineer, possessed an exceptional skill for inventiveness which led him to some of the first patents for pneumatic conveying equipment design.  Today, under the leadership of the second generation of the Ungashick family, Shick is an industry leader in providing Integrated Solutions for Ingredient Automation.
Our beginnings were in the Baking Industry where we believed that bakers should be concentrating on baking.  Our goal was and still is to enhance each customer’s production process with solutions that provide accuracy, accountability and consistency in an economical manner.  We are committed to each and every customer, not as a supplier but as a partner.
