Cooper Industries was founded in 1833 by brothers Charles and Elias Cooper. The company started as a foundry located in Mt. Vernon, Ohio, and was initially called the C&E Cooper Company. Cooper’s initial product offerings included plows, hog troughs, kettles and stoves. By the mid-nineteenth century, the Company had shifted its focus to manufacturing steam engines in hopes of leveraging the country’s growing trend towards rail transportation. It was during this period that the Company developed the Cooper Traction Engine, an innovation that is credited for helping to power our nation’s move from an agrarian to an industrial society.
