Resources, Tradition, Commitment 
Founded in 1946 by Henry Fischbein

Henry Fischbein, the father of current CEO Allen Fischbein, founded AMERICAN FITTINGS in 1946 as Edgewater Manufacturing. Henry emigrated from a war-torn Europe with metal working skills and an engineering aptitude. He worked with a focus that you cannot inspect for quality, it must be manufactured into every component.
Henry died in 1999 and left Allen, who grew up in the business, with a small company but an uncanny desire to grow the business. Allen grew the business with his “hands-on” machine knowledge and unique ability to develop products that exceeded performance requirements for fittings. From these roots, AMERICAN FITTINGS was formed to manufacture, sell and market the best electrical fitting in the market.

Since 1946, The Cornerstone of our Company:

Unbridled commitments in seeking new and advanced methods in engineering and manufacturing to design, manufacture, and sell products that are the best electrical fittings in the world.

THE NEXT GENERATION of Family and Products

Today, AMFICO provides products and services that were never imagined when Henry founded the company. In contrast, most of the electrical fitting companies from the 1940s have either been acquired by large multinational companies or have simply gone “out of business”. Many of those companies no longer manufacture products domestically and have moved to offshore suppliers to keep corporate profits and outside investors happy.
Yet as a private corporation and family-owned business, AMERICAN FITTINGS  has grown and thrived. This is due to its ability to embrace change, invest in its infrastructure with cost-effective solutions that work…. enabling a 3rd generation committed to taking AMFICO to the next generation.  Read About our Management Team →
