Historical Note

The Ferracute Machine Company of Bridgeton, New Jersey was a press and die business founded by Oberlin Smith (1840-1926), inventor, writer, manufacturer in 1863. Smith studied engineering at the Polytechnic Institute of Philadelphia planning a career in this field. In 1863 he opened an ironwork shop at North Laurel Street in Bridgeton at which he did steamfitting, plumbing and architectural ironwork plus general jobbing and repair. Smith eventually began to make foot presses for the canning industry, foreseeing a need there he could fill. Smith took a partner, J. Burkitt Webb, on January 1, 1864, and the firm became known as Smith & Webb. Five years later Webb left to become a professor, so their partnership was dissolved. By 1873 three significant events occurred: Smith's brother, Frederick F. Smith, became a partner; Smith sold the Laurel Street property and bought an abandoned brick yard on Commerce Street adjoining East Lake in Bridgeton to concentrate on the press business; and Smith adopted the adjective "Ferracute," an Italian word meaning 'sharp iron', to become part of the firm name. Ferracute Machine Co. was incorporated in January 1877. Smith served as President and Mechanical Engineer; Fred as Secretary and Treasurer.

During the 1870s Ferracute developed a growing number of customers as it began diversifying the types of presses offered. Ferracute continued developing press equipment for canneries, and by 1891 offered a full line of equipment for setting up a cannery. Treadles on presses were replaced by power attachments at Ferracute, although treadle presses continued to be made and sold until the late 1920s. Ferracute introduced its first open-back inclinable press in 1872 to meet the demand for greater productivity. In 1877 Oberlin Smith patented the double-action press for the tinsmith trade. Ferracute was invited to exhibit at the Centennial Exposition in 1876. A University of Pennsylvania graduate and Bridgeton resident, P. Kennedy Reeves, ran Ferracute's booth, and later became employed by Ferracute.

Ferracute's marketing practices involved no distributors; Ferracute sold directly to companies. Two substantial buyers of Ferracute presses, U. S. Stamping Co. in Connecticut and West Penn Tinware Co. of Pittsburgh, began their long associations with Ferracute in the 1870s. Ferracute first began selling its presses abroad in 1876. Its first European customer was Ernest Stridesburg of Sweden, who purchased his Ferracute press through Charles Youngberg of New York City. Ferracute also sold presses to companies in Canada and as far away as Australia and Japan. The beginning of the next decade looked good to Ferracute, which employed 60 men at a monthly payroll of $3,000.

The 1880s were marked by a concerted effort on Oberlin Smith's part to stimulate sales, and changes in marketing practices resulted. Smith began making annual sales trips to European factories. Marketing forms were printed in French and German to expedite sales. Domestic marketing included form letters to prospective buyers including new patent holders, and follow-up letters to established customers as well as to those who received Ferracute's catalogs. Ferracute also began actively seeking dealers. Between 1885 and 1931 Ferracute shipped out no fewer than 150 presses a year.

Ferracute developed presses to meet changing technologies, industrial needs, and fads. Between 1870 and 1902 the canning industry gave Ferracute its most substantial domestic business. In 1902 Ferracute sold its rights to manufacture and sell canning presses to the American Can Co., who with the Continental Can Co. established a monopoly dismantled by a U.S. Court decision in 1950.

In 1887 Ferracute began supplying electric companies with presses and dies. The use of electric power in factories was becoming more widely used. Ferracute, in turn, offered presses fitted for electric motors. In 1890 Eastman Kodak purchased its first Ferracute press. That same year the era of the bicycle had arrived, so Ferracute began filling substantial orders to Ohio bicycle makers. The U.S. Mint began buying its coining presses from Ferracute before the turn of the century. The U.S. Army and Navy also began buying from Ferracute. Ferracute supplied presses to horseshoe makers as well. The Victor Talking Machine Co. purchased its first press before the century was out. Ferracute's biggest customer, the automobile industry, would bring Ferracute into the 20th century.

To end the 19th century and begin the 20th, Ferracute displayed its wares at the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893, the Paris Exposition in 1900 and the Pan American Exposition in Buffalo in 1901. Ferracute presses also traveled to China. Henry A. Janvier, a Ferracute engineer, was the company's representative to China to install coin minting machines in 1898. Janiver's papers recording this trip can be found in Accession 1925.

To begin the new century the Ferracute plant at East Commerce Street was destroyed by fire, but was rebuilt the following year in 1904. Oberlin Smith expanded his estate, and had a 22 room mansion named Lochwold built in proximity to the plant. Smith also became fascinated with Frederick W. Taylor's scientific management, and invited a Taylor disciple, Frederick Parkhurst, to implement scientific management at Ferracute. Parkhurst's studies and improvements at Ferracute led to a 300 page case history, Applied Methods of Scientific Management. Ferracute adopted Parkhurst's efficiency methods. Bonuses were part of it.

One press Ferracute developed before it began its association with the automobile industry was a metal casket press. Few buyers responded. The metal caskets which were manufactured were used during World War I for shipping loaded shells and other ammunition.

Oberlin Smith was pessimistic about the use of stamped metal parts in the automobile industry. The John R. Keim Company of Buffalo, New York, an independent metal stamper who switched from bicycles to automobiles, changed the need in favor of metal stampings for cars. Keim experimented using its bicycle presses for stamping auto parts, but those presses were too weak. Keim ordered a press from Ferracute in 1905, and by 1906 was making sample parts to show auto makers. Ford became an important Keim customer, and in 1911 Ford purchased Keim. By 1912 Ford had become a strong Ferracute customer, following the leads of other car manufacturers such as Pierce Motor Co., Packard, Cadillac and Chrysler.

World War I resulted in such an increase of press and die orders for Ferracute, that Ferracute had to contract out some of the work in order to meet the demand. William Cramp & Son of Philadelphia is an example of this practice; they help Ferracute fill the press orders from Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1915. Export sales jumped. Fenwick Frères in France, munitions plants in England, and Canadian companies supplying military equipment, such as Montreal Ammunition Company, to the war effort all purchased from Ferracute. Besides this activity, Ford bought nearly 500 presses between 1914-17 to advance its assembly line process at the Ford plants established across the United States. Ford also switched from wood to steel for its dashboard. By 1927 Ford's orders declined because its competitor, General Motors, was offering financed purchasing and body style changes and colors.

Oberlin Smith died in 1926. His son, Percival, became President and Henry A. Janvier, Vice President. The 1930s were a turning point for Ferracute. Because of the Depression Ferracute went into decline, a decline from which it never fully recovered. Oberlin Smith's mansion burned to the ground in 1934, and the bulk of his personal papers were lost. That same year Ferracute went into receivership proceedings. George E. Bass, an engineer by trade who worked briefly in France for Commonwealth Steel, purchased Ferracute for $180,000 on June 28, 1937. Bass became the new President, Janvier still Vice President, Philip Meyers secretary and superintendant, and Lather Meyers, treasurer and general manager. Bass' wife and Barton Sharp, who served as receiver during receivership, were on the Board of Directors.

Under Bass, Ferracute modernized. Bass had locks installed on the doors, and a fence around the firm complex. New tools and machinery replaced the turn of the century ones. Bass switched to purchasing electricity instead of generating it on site. To make Ferracute presses competitive they had to be redesigned: streamlined, lighter and quieter. Bass also had individual motors put in them. Bass set up a network of exclusive distributorships because Ferracute distributors were double dealing. Under Bass' strategy, the distributor could not handle competitive presses in exchange for the right to sell Ferracute presses. Ferracute was the largest U. S. press builder to use distributors instead of an in-house sales force, and distributors were used up until Ferracute was sold in 1968. Bass started a series of periodical newsletters called "The Ferracute Field". It was an advertising tool as well as a how-to guide. Ferracute participated in the 1939 New York World's Fair, and the 1939 issue of "The Ferracute Field" reports on their display. A new high speed press called the Super Speed was introduced at the Fair, the production of which ended after World War II. The F press brake was also added to the Ferracute line in 1939.

With the coming of World War II, Ferracute began its association with the Franklin Arsenal, which became Ferracute's biggest domestic customer.

The Arsenal was involved in cartridge case and mortar shell manufacture. The British Purchasing Commission was Ferracute's substantial European wartime customer.

The work force at Ferracute increased during World War II to handle the orders for small arms ammunition machinery presses and other work. Previously employees joined the work force for life. The men were highly skilled, and could and were expected to operate any machine in the plant in an emergency. The apprenticeship program promoted by Oberlin Smith gave way to more formal training with the influx of wartime employees, all unskilled workers such as high school students, housewives, teachers. The Parkhurst system was updated in order to train these new employees fast. The job of assembling a press was broken down into components. These segments of the job, in turn, were taught to the unskilled workers. The new employees were also paid while they trained. Ferracute was the first company in New Jersey to set up this approach to training new workers. In fact, it worked so well that these trainees eventually left for better paying jobs. This training program was dropped after the war. A wartime employee magazine, The Ferracute Home Front, ran from August 5, 1942 to December 8, 1943. Ferracute employees also formed an independent union, which management recognized on August 2, 1942. This union dissolved after the war. Ferracute opened an employees club, added a parking lot and cafeteria, and hired a company nurse. Female employees were placed in such company occupations as security guards, labor negotiators, and skilled press workers. In 1941 Ferracute hired a controller, John B. Lawson, to reorganize Ferracute's business procedures. Lawson introduced new accounting techniques as well as modern office equipment.

The bulk of the orders were for small arms production machinery. Ferracute subcontracted work to small machine shops soon after Pearl Harbor. Ferracute's business was not restricted to small arms equipment, however. The Soviet Union ordered 147 presses, eight of which were the largest Ferracute ever built: 2500 ton top toggle embossing presses. Packard, Continental Motors, and the U. S. Navy also continued to order from Ferracute.

Soldiers returning from the war claimed the old jobs they left at Ferracute displacing wartime employees. The work force joined a local union, Local 134 of the United Electrical and Radio Workers Union, and struck in 1947. The union struck again in 1953; this was the first authorized strike. Ferracute began producing non-metal forming machines, called 'ironers', and tile pressing presses after the war. Ferracute also introduced its "Thirty" series of C (cutting) presses, which was designed for punching at a greater rate than the P (punching) presses. Even with shown innovation in its press work, and acceptance into the National Machine Tool Builders Association, competition with E. W. Bliss Corporation caused Ferracute to lose business. On May 27, 1968 the last shipment of Ferracute presses to the Utica Tool Co. went out. Ferracute was sold to the Fulton Iron Works of St. Louis within the year.

X. Frederick A. Parkhurst (FAP) Time Studies
5 folders, 8 volumes
Scope and Content
Frederick A. Parkhurst was invited to Ferracute in 1907 to do time studies because of Oberlin Smith's interest in Scientific Management. Frederick A. Parkhurst (FAP) Time Studies document Parkhurst's activities at Ferracute. A copy of Parkhurst's 300 page history, Applied Methods of Scientific Management (1912), a result of his work at Ferracute, was transferred to the Library's imprint collection. Parkhurst's time studies are detailed in eight (8) small volumes dating 1909-1913, mostly of press assemblage. Three time study manuals complement these studies: an incentive policy manual, 1948; a manual for the Foreman of the Boring Mills and Planers, 1948; a manual for the Foreman of the Store Room, 1948. Time study miscellany consists mostly of blank sample forms such as: drawing index cards; instruction forms; "Order-of-work, Clerk's record of job" forms; time study forms; and travel forms. Various charts are also here: bonus chart; charts of "thousandths of an hour or minute"; clearance and tolerance table; elemental time sheet for cutting gears on 8M; erection chart; and rules for gearing. Three remaining items in this group are: a photocopy of a section of Parkhurst's "Symbolic Nomenclature"; Ferracute Factory Chief's record for 1914; and Sketches of various sizes of straddle tools.
