Fred Neth, Sr.

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Fred Neth, Sr. (November 11, 1913 – September 19, 1993) was a machinist and entrepreneur born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. He spent most of his life in Vancouver, Washington with his father, brothers and sister. He founded Columbia Forge and Machine Works, which later become Columbia Machine, Inc. At the age of 23, Fred completed his apprenticeship as a machinist with the SP&S railroad yard in Vancouver, Washington. In 1937, he borrowed $800 and opened up Columbia Forge and Machine Works. After World War II, Columbia Machine Works was asked to overhaul a concrete block machine. Fred and his brothers, Walter and Otto, decided the machine needed a redesign rather than repairs. In 1945, they delivered a semi-automatic hydraulically operated, two-at-a-time block machine. Over the years, Fred had several offers to sell the company as it grew but refused every offer. He was involved in Columbia until his eventual passing.
