Iron, Steam and Wood: 150 Years with the Waterous Engine Works Company


Read this fascinating corporate history as it tells how the Waterous Engine Works Company supplied machinery to fuel the development and growth of the country.

From the simple iron castings that came out of the 1844 foundry, the family company pioneered and became a leader in several fields. Their sawmills were a major factor in the growth of the lumber industry.

Waterous steam fire engines became the stuff of lore. Huge Waterous traction engines helped to open up the vast prairie expanses to farming. Complex pulpwood grinders became almost standard in the country’s pulp and paper industry. The Waterous U.S. subsidiary was the first to build do e gasoline powered fire engines.

As over 100 years gf Waterous management ended, the company turned to manufacture of wood harvesting equipment.
