March 13th 1925 Naylor Pipe is Born
Naylor Pipe Company was incorporated in Illinois on March 13, 1925 as the Naylor Spiral Pipe Company. The founders were John Miller, Alexander Henderson, Fred Naylor, Carl Naylor, and Elmer Naylor.
Carl Naylor had built his first machine to make straight lockseam pipe in 1912 while working in the sheet metal shop of Robertson Brothers Manufacturing Company. By 1919, he had perfected the first machine to produce a lockseam spiral pipe. A lockseam pipe was wound on a lathe turned mandrel, with the edges interlocked into a rigid four-ply seam; a pipe with an accurate diameter which was turned on an arbor.
