Where we started, what we do and where we’re going…

EG  (Emsco Group), originally the THEO J. ELY company, was founded in 1861. The company's original product lines consisted of wooden mop buckets, mop handles, carpet beaters, crosscut saw handles, cow pokes, and buggy whips - all considered cutting edge in the mid 1800's. Theo's guiding thought was solving problems by producing and selling innovative and functional products - always keeping quality and customer service in the forefront of his thinking. Today, EG’s corporate statement mirrors that of the founder and is expressed best in the corporate motto:  innovation, function, quality, and service!

We have changed quite a bit since the 1800's by broadening our product offering and expanding into new markets. Over time, EG has maintained a position of outstanding quality and customer satisfaction, which has contributed to the company's growth over the past 150+ years.
