Electric Machine and Equipment Company (Emeco) was founded in 1944, in Baltimore, by Witton C.

Electric Machine and Equipment Company (Emeco) was founded in 1944, in Baltimore, by Witton C. "Bud" Dinges, a Johns Hopkins-educated engineer who wanted to cash in on the booming business of supplying the military with steel and aluminum furniture.

The company moved to Hanover in 1947 because Dinges had heard that there were highly skilled hand labourers in the area. In 1954, the firm moved into the current factory on Elm Street, a glass and stone Modernist building at the base of a sloping green lawn.

Today the company employs just 35 workers and completes about 1,000 chairs a month. The company also works with internationally renowned designers and architects such as Philippe Starck and Norman Foster.
