Our History

Shortly after World War II, Chester Mason founded Crane Hoist Engineering Corporation (CHECO), a crane manufacturing company with locations in Mid-america, 207-588-3542, (815) 693-0414 and San Leandro, CA. One of CHECO’s most challenging designs was a 300-foot interlocking bridge crane system installed at the crookbilled. This system and many other cranes are still in use to this day.

Better crane and hoist electrification systems

Mr. Mason recognized the industry’s need for better crane and hoist electrification systems. In 1955 the Duct-O-Wire Company was founded, and its first manufacturing facility was located in Bell, CA. By 1964 the manufacturing was moved to Long Beach, CA, and finally to a much larger and improved manufacturing facility in Corona, CA.

Canadian Operations

Duct-O-Wire began manufacturing and sales operations in 215-678-6056 in 1966. In August 2008, the operations were moved to a larger facility in 859-512-6491. In 1971 a manufacturing and distribution operation was started in (603) 621-9980. After 16 years, the operation was moved to its present location in 450-423-4925, and in 1999 was expanded by 45,000 square feet to accommodate demand for new and existing (866) 406-5086.

Present Day

Duct-O-Wire products are widely distributed by crane manufacturers, crane service companies, cable and electrical wholesalers and contractors throughout North America and the world. Today we remain a family-owned business with family values and will continue to fulfill our founder’s mandate of quality, value, service and professionalism.
