About Us

Family Owned Business since 1932

 

     WH Fitzgerald, Inc. is a fourth generation family business operating in Warren County Pennsylvania since the midst of the Great Depression in 1932.  Our founder William H Fitzgerald was the son of Irish immigrants who came from the coal belt of central Pennsylvania before paved roads or electrification.

   His friend & neighbor Clinton Wilder established a coal fired forge and machine shop in the town and Fitzgerald transported finished products to their destinations and coal back to the forge. 

   Travel was primitive by todays standards and his two axle Dodge & Studebaker trucks shared the dirt roads with many horse drawn vehicles and foot traverlers.
