About Us



Established in 1865. Around the time of the civil war, Adam Clark McCown, a blacksmith – traveled from Virginia to Oregon. His son, James McCown, picked up the trade and continued with it in Tygh Valley, Oregon. His son, Verl McCown, integrated the family blacksmith operation and metal fabrication business with a family farm and ranch. His son, Chuck McCown, ran away (screaming) from the farm and ranch as soon as he possibly could to get away from truly hard work.

Chuck studied CNC machining at a community college, obtained his welding training from the Steam­fitters Union. He obtained a formal education in Electrical Engineering from BYU and later a degree in business/management from HLG University. Chuck has been involved in some form of manufacturing his whole life.

His sons Frank, Bill and Ben are currently involved in the business as 5th generation metal workers, focusing on CNC/CAM work, robotic manufacturing with degrees in electrical engineering and computer science. However, manager Jenny McCown truly runs the show.
