Born in 1832, Eli Hendrick apprenticed as a wood turner in his native Michigan. He served a tour of duty as a US Pony Express mail carrier in Iowa. He also practiced his craft as a turner of ornamental wooden porch pillars during the early years of the 19th century before moving east to Franklin, Pennsylvania, in 1850s.
A confidence man from Toronto, Canada sold Eli a formula for the manufacture of oil for the then-considerable sum of $10. The formula turned out to be worthless, but it sparked Mr. Hendrick鎶� interest in the refining of oil. Eli quickly developed a very worthwhile formula and process of his own, producing quality lubricating products mainly for the railroads. So was born the Hendrick Company.
Sensing that a refinery would be most profitable if it were located near its customers, Mr. Hendrick relocated his refinery to Carbondale in 1860 in order to be near several large railroads.
For the next dozen years, the company flourished, developing such new products as 鎻媋lena Signal Oil, an extra-fine kerosene for railway lighting. The company also developed 鎻歭umboleum, a gear box lubricant that remained a basic ingredient of automotive lubricants for 75 years.
The filter presses used in the refining process consisted of mats of woven wire and canvas. In constant use, the wire eventually was abraded to the point where it pierced the canvas, reducing the efficiency of the filter. Mr. Hendrick reasoned that a metal sheet, properly perforated, could replace the canvas-and-wire filter, giving it a longer life. Several tries at drilling holes, first individually, then in a multiple drill-press proved the idea as sound, but the production process too costly. He then conceived the idea of punching holes simultaneously in the sheet metal. The metal-punching machine he developed was a pilot for the modern perforating press and the foundation upon which Hendrick Manufacturing Company was started in 1876.
Over the next 100 years, the company steadily expanded its technology and its product lines, branching out from the original oil and coal industries into aggregate, iron, steel, paper, material handling, construction and other industries where perforated or slotted sheets of material are required.
California Perforating Company
In 1884, California Perforating Screen Company (Cal-Perf) was founded by the Wagner family to manufacture hammer mill and grain-cleaning screens for California鎶� growing agricultural industry. These items were produced on throat presses using tooling limited to 6 lengths. In order to penetrate additional markets, Cal-Perf purchased stock-size sheets and light plates that were perforated on multi-punch, all-across presses operated by the Eastern and Mid-Western perforators at the time. Cal-Perf stocked these sheets for resale in their San Francisco warehouse.
Hendrick Manufacturing Company purchased California Perforating Screen Company in 1966 and moved the operation into a larger facility. This larger plant was could accommodate additional throat presses and supporting equipment such as shears, straightening rolls, press brakes and bending rolls. Three new, multi-punch, all-across presses were added to product custom perforated sheets that were being purchased at the time from the Hendrick Carbondale plant. Under Hendrick ownership, Cal-Perf grew from an office manager and 4 plant operators to a total of 23 employees.
When the lease on the San Francisco facility expired in 1982, Hendrick moved the Cal-Perf operations to Visalia in order to be closer to the Los Angeles market. At the same time, in order to gain warehouse space and a sales...(and so on)
