EMECO

Recycling is obsolete because Emeco makes only things that lasts.

In 1944, Wilton Carlyle Dinges founded the Electrical Machine and Equipment Company (Emeco) in Hanover Pennsylvania utilizing the skills of local craftsman. During WWII the U.S government gave him a big assignment, make chairs that could withstand water, salt air and sailors. Make chairs lightweight and make them strong, build them for a lifetime.

Aluminum was the obvious choice, engineered for practical purposes, designed by real people. 

It takes 77 steps to build an Emeco chair. Forming, welding, grinding, heat-treating, finishing, anodizing- just to mention a few.  

Emeco chairs are universal icons in the design community and a great example of eco design.
