The History of Windy City Engineering, Inc.

Windy City Engineering Inc. has been doing business on the south side of Chicago since it was founded in 1974. Our first location was in a warehouse located at 3001 S. Broad Street. Here we started out by rebuilding cylinder heads and doing light block work. As our business grew it was time for a bigger location in order to better serve our customers.

In 1978 our current location on 30th Street became our new home. Windy City Engineering was able to remove and install engines at this time in order to be of full service to our customers. The engine department grew and we acquired our first crankshaft grinding machine.

Windy City Engineering became a company that strictly worked on cylinder heads or engines, no removal or installation was done. The demand for our rebuilt engines became so great that it was time to specialize in this line of work. Our employees were able to become ASE certified and were extensively trained and cross-trained on all machines throughout the rebuilding process. This enabled us to provide a superior product.


Fast forward to 2009 when we opened our second location. Located in the South Shore area we are proud to have had the opportunity to expand our business. We are now able to offer our complete machine shop services to another area of Chicago as well as northwest Indiana. Our Stony Island location offers the same services as our 30th Street location. In addition, this newer location also has engine parts readily available as we are an ENGINETECH parts distributor.

We are family owned and operated and we are committed to producing a high quality product at competitive prices. Only the finest state of the art equipment is used, assuring our customer of a finished product that we are proud to put our name on.

We look forward to becoming acquainted with you and the needs of your business. To make doing business with Windy City Engineering and Windy City Engine and Parts easy we have at your disposal ASE certified machinists to answer any questions you may have.
