Located at 384 Atlantic Avenue, Boston, MA, Edwin E. Bartlett was the successor to C. F. Harlow & Co. (ca 1899). He had worked for Harlow since 1866. Shortly after taking over the business, Bartlett introduced the "Federal" bench planer which was quite successful and surviving examples can still be found.

In 1916 Bartlett moved to Nashua, NH, and sometime after that the business was reorganized as Greenerd Press & Machine Co.
