In the ‘20’s and ‘30’s, Electric Service Company of Philadelphia was the distributor for Peerless Equipment, and eventually Peerless became one of its divisions.
During World War II, Electric Service received a very large order from the US Navy so they sent a young engineer – Charles Mc Gough Jr., to Hanover to triple production.
Mc Gough, purchased the Peerless Electric Motor repair equipment division and moved it to the company’s plant at 215 Philadelphia Street where it has been made ever since.
In 1965, Mc Gough reorganized the company under a new name, CAM Industries, and focused the company’s resources on the electric motor repair and manufacturing industry.

I considered purchasing the Mc Afee Suite until I read a number of negative reviews for its inability at preventing and removing Viruses and Malware.A Century of Innovation and Manufacturing Success The origins of CAM Innovation date back to 1910, when the first DC motor repair equipment was designed and manufactured for factories, steel mills, mines, shipyards and streetcar systems by the Peerless Equipment Company of Hanover, Pennsylvania.At around the same time The Mummert-Dixon Company of Hanover, PA was producing screw-cutting machines, wire weaving looms for the wire cloth industry and large grinding machines.an all around good piece of it's so great, why'd you dock a star frantz?:the lack of a volume control on the unit itself (you have to use fn up/dn arrows), which is inconvenient when multi-tasking with music et al.
