Entwistle Extruder History
The Entwistle Company was founded in 1918 by James L. Entwistle, who was an electrical engineer and professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Professor Entwistle founded the Company in Rhode Island for the purpose of manufacturing specialized machinery for producing insulated electrical wire, which was an important emerging technology at the time.
We are not the Entwistle OEM, but we do service their products.
