The year was 1919 and America was growing and changing in the wake of World War I. In Cleveland, Ohio, Walter Bohn and brothers Carl and Cornelius Walters rose to the challenges of the new peacetime economy. With an original bill of sale of $900 and a 4,400 square foot facility, these aspiring young entrepreneurs founded Master Products, a company dedicated to supplying quality stamped washers, custom stampings, and associated products at competitive prices.
Through the hard work of its loyal workforce, many of whom are second or third generation employees, the company has grown to encompass a 66,000 square foot facility which houses 52 presses with capabilities of 15 to 250 tons as well as secondary operations and a die-making shop. From its humble beginnings, Master Products has remained a family-managed company with a conscience that makes – and keeps – its promises.
