This slideshow highlights manufacturing companies that have a history that spans at least 100 years.

Surviving and growing for 100 years or more is no easy feat for a manufacturing company. Explore this showcase of manufacturers that have demonstrated such resiliency and then read the companion piece, "Staying Power: Manufacturers that Stand the Test of Time."

Part 1 of IndustryWeek's showcase of century old manufacturers, which you are viewing now, illustrates companies with roots that go back to the 1800s or before. Part 2 of this salute to century old manufacturers presents firms whose beginnings date back to 1900.

This slideshow is not a comprehensive list of all manufacturing companies that have reached the century mark. IndustryWeek will continue to add manufacturers to the timeline, and we welcome input from you.
