In 1864, a young entrepreneur from Ireland named Patrick Wall decided to follow his dream and founded a manufacturing company in Pittsburgh, PA. He named the new company P. Wall Manufacturing Company. Mr. Wall thus launched a distinguished career which spanned some fifty-seven years before relinquishing control of the company to a younger group of owners in 1921.

Some of the early products manufactured were oil cans, blow torches, plumber's furnaces, metal gongs used on horse-drawn street cars and in coal mines, and ice cans used for the production and transportation of ice before the advent of electrical refrigeration.
