Our Company

The Ewart-Ohlson Machine Company was founded in 1942 to serve the needs of the rubber industry in Akron, Ohio. The company moved to its current location in Cuyahoga Falls, just north of Akron, in 1958. Ewart-Ohlson owes its longevity to its ability to adapt to the nation’s – and the world’s – ever-changing industrial climate. As the rubber industry matured and eventually began moving out of northeast Ohio, Ewart-Ohlson began working with the steel and automotive industries in the 1970’s, and then with the booming oil exploration industry in the 1980’s. By then, the company had also begun to explore the machining requirements of the aerospace industry and soon acquired the technology and skills necessary to serve that industry as it began a period of steady growth. Ewart-Ohlson now specializes as a source for performing qualifying and rough machining operations on forgings for the aircraft landing gear industry.

Today, Ewart-Ohlson occupies a campus with two buildings covering 38,000 square feet of manufacturing and storage floor space. The plant is equipped with cranes and forklifts that can lift loads up to 20,000 pounds, enabling us to machine the massive forgings used for even the largest commercial and military aircraft. Our location offers easy access to both Akron and Cleveland, as well as convenient interstate highway access for customers across the continent.
