NAM wishes ESCO Corporation a Happy 100th Birthday

On July 13th, Steel parts manufacturer, ESCO Corp. will celebrate their 100th Anniversary. ESCO has a rich history over their 100 years in the industry. The Portland based company originally catered primarily to the timber industry and has grown into a producer of wear parts and services for the mining, construction and industrial, and oil & gas industries. During World War II, the company produced bows, anchors and anchor chains for ships, cast parts for tanks and aircrafts, and draft line buckets to dredge channels and build air strips.

In 1973, the company became the first Steel Foundry in the world to use the Argon Oxygen Decarbonization (AOD process) to produce strong alloys. Today, ESCO has operations in 28 countries on six continents and employs 4,800 people around the world.

NAM would like to wish ESCO Corp. a very happy 100th birthday and send wishes for a prosperous future. The manufacturing industry is a place where strong and enduring companies stretch centuries and generations and ESCO is a perfect example of this long lasting prosperity and innovation.

Congratulations ESCO!
