Our Roots on the Rivers

Patterson Manufacturing began operations in 1858 on the banks of Pittsburgh's Monongahela River. Known largely today for its towboat and barge winches, Patterson's driving principles in product development include safety, reduction of maintenance requirements, and flexibility to meet customer's individual needs. Through innovation, thorough product testing, exceptional service, and prioritization of customers' bottom lines, Patterson has grown its winch line from just a few sizes (in the 1950s) to winches ranging in capacity from 20 tons to 90 tons, in three operating formats: manual, electrical, and hydraulic. In addition to their proven product line and list of patents, their success can be measured by a deep roster of long-standing customers. Patterson's invaluable manufacturing knowledge and arsenal of in-house fabrication machinery are now available to business owners and original equipment manufacturers through Jack Fabrication Company.
