ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Despite what the thermometer read Wednesday, the heat was definitely on in Rockford.
When it comes to the heat treating industry. It was hard to eclipse the event at Eclipse Inc. Every year members of the metal treating institute tour a state of the art facility somewhere in the United States. And today about 50 industry leaders came to Rockford to tour this third generation company. Eclipse was founded in Rockford in 1908, the same year the Chicago Cubs last won a World Series.
