Emeco was founded as a response to a commission from the Navy to make chairs for submarines in WWII. The contract specified that the chair had to be able to withstand torpedo blasts to the side of a destroyer. Founded by Winton Dinges in 1944, the company employs a 77 Step Process that was developed by Alcoa and Emeco to manufacture a chair so durable that it far exceeded the Navy's specifications.
Emeco's founder, Winton C. Dinges, was a master tool and die maker with an engineering background. He believed that a hands-on approach to production using outstanding materials would lead to outstanding design and outstanding furniture. It is a vision that has served Emeco well since 1944.
Few organizations have as storied a history as the Electric Machine and Equipment Company. Emeco's first major achievement was the Navy Chair- a chair designed in collaboration with ALCOA for seaworthiness. Since then, it has expanded its offering but held closely to Dinges' vision. Emeco and its manufacturing facilities are based in Hanover, Pennsylvania.
