“Cameron History

Cameron’s business legacies predate the beginnings of the world’s modern petroleum industry. The story begins in American’s pioneer days, more than 177 years ago, when in 1833 the Cooper brothers, Charles and Elias, opened a small, one-horse powered foundry in Mount Vernon, Ohio. From the birth of the industrial revolution, a tradition of leadership was forged. Today, the trust of our customers place in Cameron people, products, systems and services reflects that continued leadership.

From these beginnings, Cameron today incorporates the traditions and strengths of many outstanding companies, including true pioneers in the industry, such as Cameron Iron Works dating from 1920, and others that rose to leading market positions in more recent times. Together, these legacies form the basis our broad suite of proven product brand names surrounding our common entity trade name, CAMERON. The company is forged of tradition and refined by experience.”
