Picoma Celebrates 75th Anniversary

Picoma, a division of Zekelman Industries, is celebrating 75 years as a domestic manufacturer of electrical elbows, couplings and nipples (EC&N). Picoma has a long history in the steel industry, dating back to its founding in 1946. Company leadership and employees credit Picoma's longevity in the business to the company's commitment to domestic manufacturing.

"We started out manufacturing in Ohio 75 years ago, and we are still here today," said Steve Camilletti, Picoma's General Manager for North America. "The commitment to controlling our own destiny, controlling our service, controlling our quality and to making an American-made product-that is what has really kept us going all these years."

When asked about the company's future, Picoma's leadership says they have made modernization a priority. They are embracing a human-machine co-manufacturing environment that has allowed them to automate without losing their workforce. Picoma is also investing significantly in high-tech equipment, eco-friendly manufacturing practices and online ordering and inventory management services.

Over the last five years, Picoma has added 35 U.S. jobs and continues to produce 100% American-made EC&N using domestically sourced steel.

Picoma's 75th anniversary comes on the heels of Zekelman Industries' recent "Life Reinforced" campaign launch, which aims to communicate the importance of domestic manufacturing and calls for companies to "make it here."

"When we invest in domestic manufacturing, we invest in local workers and local communities, creating opportunities for generations to come," said Zekelman Industries CEO Barry Zekelman. "Picoma is a part of our family and plays a vital role in our vision for the future. We are proud to help them celebrate 75 years in domestic manufacturing."
