Emeco

In 1944, Wilton Carlyle Dinges founded the Electrical Machine and Equipment Company (Emeco) in Hanover Pennsylvania. During WWII the U.S government gave him a big assignment — make chairs that could withstand water, salt air and sailors while being lightweight, strong and built to last a lifetime. In 77 steps, Emeco created the the 1006 Navy. Their meticulous process takes a human eye to know when it is done right and human hands to get it that way. Their goal is to make recycling obsolete and keep making things that last.
