AMPCO Mergers and Divestitures. Evolution of the company logo.
August Littman proudly proclaimed the AMPCO aluminum bronze alloy as “the metal without equal.” This has proven itself to be true for more than 100 years. In hand tools, pumps and valves AMPCO has been ever present and doggedly successful with unique chemical and mechanical properties that make our alloys non-sparking, non-magnetic and corrosion resistant. We look forward to the next 100 years!
Although the AMPCO logo has changed through the years the diamond shape, without exception has been deeply associated with the American Metal Products Company. Even when the logo morphed to a single A, surrounded by the circle, representing publicly traded AMPCO-Pittsburgh, AMPCO was central to our identity – American Metal Products.
