Graymills Celebrates 75 years
23. May 2014
Graymills, which manufactures industrial pumping systems and parts washers, is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year.
In 1939, "Gray-Mills" was established in Chicago, Illinois, as a metalworking pump company supplying pumps to the war effort. Soon after the war the company saw opportunity in the parts washing industry. These parts washers meet the growing needs of a burgeoning auto industry. In the 1960's Graymills expanded from its machine tool, general manufacturing and industrial cleaning base into the printing industry by developing market specific products, such as inking systems and filters for flexographic and gravure printers. Now a global company recognized as a quality brand, Graymills continues to exemplify the best in US manufacturing.
Graymills officials say the success and longevity of the company would not have been possible without three key groups: our customers, our knowledgeable field representatives and our employees. Their loyalty and support has been the key to Graymills strength and ability to prosper throughout the years, despite economic downturns and technological challenges.
Graymills says this will not only be a year of celebrating, but also a time to look forward to new opportunities and another 75 years of manufacturing in America.
