Obituary: Theodore J. Orlowski

Arlington Metals founder Theodore J. Orlowski died Jan. 21 at age 82.

The Chicago native began his career in manufacturing before striking out on his own in 1971. In his first venture, he rented space in Skokie, Ill., to run a single 52-inch slitter. The original business, Orlowski & Associates, became Arlington Processing when he moved to Arlington Heights. It then became Arlington Metals when it added a sales division. Orlowski opened the current facility in Franklin Park, Ill., in 1981, and a second operation in Sawyer, Mich., in 1987. The companies remain in the family. He also opened a trucking business, Tishka-K Corp., with his son Tim.

He is survived by Virginia, his wife of 60 years, and children Sharon Orlowski, Tim Orlowski and Kim D’Amore, plus four grandchildren.
