Screen Machine Industries celebrated its 50th anniversary June 23 with an open house celebration that drew hundreds of people to its facility in Etna, Ohio.

The event included factory tours, equipment demonstrations and a series of speakers, including dignitaries from the state of Ohio. Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, delivered a video tribute to the company, saluting Screen Machine for 50 years of service to Ohio.

Steve Cohen, president of Screen Machine, delivered remarks along with his father, Bernard, who founded the company in 1966. The two shared memories from over the years, paying tribute to employees, customers, dealers, suppliers and others who helped to build and sustain the business over a half-century.

“We’re a unique business,” Steve says. “We are a family business. We’re a business that started small. I’ve heard statistics that it’s [in the] low single digits that a company will last 50 years. We’re very proud to have done so.”
