McDonough celebrates 125 years

Oct. 30, 2013, Eau Claire, WI – Frank McDonough started a company to build custom made equipment that was better than anything being built at that time, with a focus on efficiency, production, design, durability, simplicity and strength. Today, 125 years later, Frank's legacy lives on.

On November 13th, McDonough will be hosting an open house from 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm to celebrate their 125th birthday. When Frank incorporated in 1888, McDonough Manufacturing started out servicing sawmills in the Eau Claire area as well as other mills around the State. Today, McDonough's customer list spans the globe to countries like Australia, New Zealand, Austria, France and Brazil.

McDonough's product line has also grown to include: bandsaws for headrig and resaw applications, log carriages, linebar resaws, horizontal resaws, center-splitting resaws, lineal or transverse optimized board edgers, gang edgers, manually fed edgers and industrial drill bit grinders.
