    Message from Our President

    Welcome to the ELLWOOD Crankshaft Group website! We are thrilled to share with you the remarkable investments and the exceptional workforce that have propelled us towards cutting-edge advancements since our establishment in 2003. With great determination, ECG has made substantial investments in our crankshaft business, expanding our capacity, upgrading our equipment, and modernizing our facilities. Furthermore, we have diversified our offerings by branching into other types of forgings and providing services such as machining/milling, heat treatment, and testing.

    About Us & Our History

    Founded in 1910 by brothers David A. Evans and Jonathan A. Evans, ELLWOOD is a privately-owned family company with over a century of experience in delivering quality products and exceptional customer service. Today, ELLWOOD is led by Bentraum D. Huffman, who succeeded David Evans Barensfeld as Chairman of the Board of Directors in 2019.

    ELLWOOD's crankshaft division became an independent business unit in 1992, when all crankshaft machining and finishing operations were moved from the original location in Ellwood City, PA, to form a new company in Hermitage, PA, called ELLWOOD Crankshaft & Machine (ECM). In 2003, ELLWOOD purchased the assets of the former National Forge Company, which became ELLWOOD National Crankshaft (ENC). The company has since grown to become the largest crankshaft manufacturer in the world – ELLWOOD Crankshaft Group!
