How old is the company?
We were founded in 1901 in Portland, Oregon. At the turn of the century, machinery and spare parts for industry had to be brought in by ship from San Francisco or by rail from the East. These distances and delivery times inspired a group of businessmen to form Columbia Engineering Works, which later became Columbia Steel Casting Co., Inc. See photos and read more about our history
