A Century of Innovation and Manufacturing Success
The origins of CAM Innovation date back to 1910, when the first DC motor repair equipment was designed and manufactured for factories, steel mills, mines, shipyards and streetcar systems by the Peerless Equipment Company of Hanover, Pennsylvania.
At around the same time The Mummert-Dixon Company of Hanover, PA was producing screw-cutting machines, wire weaving looms for the wire cloth industry and large grinding machines.
In the ‘20’s and ‘30’s, Electric Service Company of Philadelphia was the distributor for Peerless Equipment, and eventually Peerless became one of its divisions. During World War II, Electric Service received a very large order from the US Navy so they sent a young engineer – Charles McGough Jr., to Hanover to triple production.
After World War ll, railroads across America began aggressively moving from steam locomotives to the new technology of electric and diesel electric locomotives. This opened a new market for Peerless products and began a long association with the railway industry.
