History

Precision Castparts Corp. has been headquartered in Portland, OR, for more than 60 years. The business has grown from a small manufacturer of investment castings for a wide variety of applications to a Fortune 500 company producing investment castings, forgings, and fasteners for aerospace, power, and general industrial customers. This growth has resulted from increased market share, entry into new end markets, and strategic acquisitions.

In 1949, Joseph Cox, president and owner of Oregon Saw Chain in Portland, started a small investment casting business with the intention of making a special cutter for his chain saw products. Ed Cooley, assistant general manager for the company, began to spend more and more time with the casting operation and solicited outside work primarily from local businesses. This venture proved so successful that, by the spring of 1953, the casting division was made into a separate business and named Precision Castparts Corp. Three years later, the company, owned by Cooley and two other individuals, was incorporated under the laws of the State of Oregon.

Over the course of the company’s history, Precision Castparts has been led by just three chairmen and chief executive officers: Ed Cooley, Bill McCormick, and Mark Donegan.
