Started in a garage, still DIY proud

EMSCO wasn’t a get rich quick scheme. It began as an alternative to unreliable suppliers. It’s grown into the answer for flexible manufacturing.

Made in Virginia

EMSCO was founded in 2001 by Ken Goodrow with a single helper/boss—his wife. It started in their garage and quickly spread into their house. Over the following years, Parker Garrett signed on as manager and co-owner, and EMSCO has grown into a business with its own custom-designed facility and zero debt.

Built on simplicity

EMSCO keeps growing because Ken believed in doing things the right way. Only making promises you can keep—then honoring those commitments. Today, we do whatever it takes to make a project work—on schedule and without superfluous add-ons and change-fees.

Veteran owned & operated

Parker and Ken are U.S. Naval Academy graduates and engineers. While they don’t require employees to have Navy-regulation haircuts, they do impart the naval spirit of responsibility and integrity throughout EMSCO culture.
