GREENVILLE, NC – Penco Products, Inc., a North Carolina-based manufacturing company, has released a celebratory logo commemorating 145 years of manufacturing products in the United States of America.
L. Lewis Sagendorph started the company in 1869 as he fulfilled his ambition to begin his own company that would produce the finest metal products in America. He called his fledgling business the Penn Metal Corporation of Pennsylvania, and began by making steel culvert pipe on Oregon Avenue in South Philadelphia.
Over the years, Penn Metal's product lines broadened to include lockers, shelving and even aircraft landing mats. A reputation for quality fabrication spread, and the company's influence became nationwide. In the 1950's, the name was shortened to Penco Products and the plant and offices were expanded to a modern facility in Oaks, Pennsylvania.
In 2001, the East coast manufacturing facility was moved from Pennsylvania to a 475,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Hamilton, North Carolina, allowing significant room for expansion. The corporate headquarters is located in Greenville, North Carolina with numerous Distribution Centers located across the country.
“As we celebrate this milestone achievement, we also renew our commitment to customer service, continuous improvement and industry leadership. Looking back, I am humbled by Penco’s 145 year record of accomplishments. Looking forward, I am enthused about the impactful changes that I see occurring throughout our business, the momentum that is building and the optimism of Penco’s employees.“, Tom Kulikowski, President and CEO of Penco Products, Inc.
