Watts & Campbell (Mar. 2012)

 Watts & Campbell Co., located in Newark NJ, was formed in 1851 and was family-owned and in continuous operation until a few years ago.  Their principal product was steam engines, although they also made some machine tools.  When the manufacture and sale of  steam engines was no longer economically viable,  Watts & Campbell did maintenance work and jobbing.  The original foundry is gone, but the machine shop remains.
