Vollrath Co. history told

Made in Sheboygan County, From Coffee Filters to Cookware, a five-part series about Sheboygan County’s deep and fascinating manufacturing history continues Wednesday, March 16, 2016 with a focus on the Vollrath Company.

Jacob J. Vollrath founded Sheboygan Cast Steel Co. in 1874 in Sheboygan producing railroad frogs, small cast parts for the furniture industry, cooking ranges, and agricultural implements. When son Andrew learned the art of creating enameled cast iron the company began to manufacture a small amount of enameled cast iron utensils that Jacob sold himself. Jacob’s son, Carl A.W., originated and patented the iconic speckled enamel in 1889.

Jeff Madson, VP of Human Resources will take us through the company’s fascinating history, its product line and its involvement with the community.

This program begins at 6:30 p.m. and will be held at the Sheboygan County Historical Museum, 3110 Erie Avenue, Sheboygan.

A joint venture of the Sheboygan County Historical Society and Sheboygan County Historical Research Center, the program is free of charge and open to the public.
