Nowak Expertise

Where knowledge meets experience.

Since 1946, our company has been bringing expertise to downtown Fort Wayne. What started as a desire to be the best at selling and servicing welding machines, now extends into Gasses, Fire Protection, Public Safety, PPE, First Aid and even Porta Jon Services.

Our dedicated staff are well-known for their years of experience in their respected fields. We are even often sought by contractors and city planners for our knowledge of fire building codes. Below you will find resources to white papers, case studies, NFPA Resources, our exclusive “Work Bench” Topic Area and new video Content.

In 1946 Marvel Williams (The original TJ Nowak) Store was opened at 504 West Superior.

In 1956, Nowak Williams Store moved to our current location at 302 West Superior.

Greg Nowak sat on the board of NFPA as a founding member.
