DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS:

The Ewart-Ohlson Machine Company was founded in 1942 to serve the needs of the rubber industry in Akron and moved to its current location in Cuyahoga Falls in 1958. Ewart-Ohlson owes its longevity to its ability to adapt to the nation’s ever-changing industrial climate. As the rubber industry matured and eventually moved out of Northeast Ohio, Ewart-Ohlson began working with the steel and automotive industries in the 1970s, and then with the booming oil exploration industry in the 1980s. By then, the company had acquired the technology and skills necessary to serve the aerospace industry and now specializes in qualifying and rough machining forgings for manufacturers of aircraft landing gear.

In 2003, Ewart-Ohlson completed a contract to machine the mortar tubes for the Mars Exploration Rover Mission. The mortar tubes were part of the parachute deployment system which helped guide each of the landers to the Martian surface. After two flawless touchdowns, “Spirit” and “Opportunity” rolled off their landers and sent back fascinating pictures and data from the surface of Mars for many years.
