WHO WE ARE: Our Company originated in 1859 under the name of Philip Smith, Founder and Machinist. The oldest catalog we have lists him as manufacturer of Automatic Grain Warehouse and Elevator Machinery. Mill Supplies of all kinds, Engines, Boilers, etc. The trade name of his grain elevator was The Miami Valley Warehouse Machinery. This catalog was issued sometime before the 1900.
In Mr. Smith’s second catalog, he changed the Company name to Philip Smith Manufacturing Company. It shows improvements and advancements in the design of his machinery even though the machinery is still geared to the horse and wagon trade.
