Best known as a maker of mining machinery, the Joshua Hendy Iron Works—also known as the Joshua Henry Machine Works—also made sawmills.

Charles E. Moore bought the firm around 1940, and began producing Marine Engines for Liberty Ships. In 1942, Moore’s Joshua Henry Machine Works bought the Crocker-Wheeler Electric Co. for $3.2 million.
