1932-1971

After the Great Depression, business quickly picked up as the economy bounced back, along with the advent of World War II. Faust Company stayed busy during the 1940’s with several large WWII related projects, mainly building supercharger and ammunition plants in Greenfield and Chicago, but also including involvement in the Manhattan Engineer District program.

In 1959 Faust Company unionized, and it wasn't long after the company greatly expanded its skilled work force.

Evinrude and GE Medical conducted much business with Faust Company during post WWII times. It was into the 60's when business really boomed, as companies like Briggs & Stratton, Masterlock, and Harley Davidson expanded and grew as fast as anyone could keep up.
