A History of Eagle Crusher Manufacturing

October 7th is National Manufacturing Day, and on this important day for American manufacturing, we wanted to share a little bit of history on our more that 100 years of manufacturing crushing, screening, and conveying equipment.

The idea that created Eagle Crusher

Eagle Crusher was founded around 1915 in Kenton, OH by C.L. Woods who was a distributor of Eagle Tractors in Ohio. Mr. Woods wanted to utilize the PTO on the tractor to operate a small jaw crusher to crush fieldstones from farm fields into a usable road base. He set off and founded Eagle Crusher to accomplish is ambitions.

Moving Eagle Crusher’s manufacturing to its new home

In the 1950s, under ownership of the Cobey family, Eagle Crusher was moved to Galion, OH where it continued to produce crushing equipment on its own portable chassis. While in the 1980s, the factory moved to its current location in Bucyrus, OH.

Continuing the innovations that evolve the industry

In the 1980, Eagle Crusher began introducing Horizontal Shaft Impactors (HSI) to the market and developed the first concrete recycling equipment in the United States. While in the 1990s, Eagle Crusher developed its own line of HSI crushers under the UltraMax® line.

Continuing to strengthen the industry

Eagle Crusher continues today to manufacture a complete line of crushing, screening, and conveying equipment for the concrete, asphalt, and aggregate industries today. We are proud to design and manufacture our equipment in the United States.
