Artifex Equipment, Inc., was founded in 2003 by Nicholas G. Yeager to develop, manufacture and sell products and equipment that aid in the industrial, preservation, art and disaster recovery fields. Recombining existing technologies while adding new features is the hallmarks of Artifex Equipment, Inc.'s product line. Improved output and quality while increasing portability and flexibility have long interested Yeager in his career as a practitioner, educator and librarian. Using his thirty years of book-related experience, he has focused his attention on creating simple solutions to problems he has encountered. Yeager attributes the success of these innovations to being willing to work with others on the challenges presented.
