Swiss Files


Whipple File Manufacturing Co. - Ballardvale, MA




The Whipple File Co., which makes machine cut files, is the first successful concern of this sort in the world.

It was established in 1859, when the firm purchased the building, and it was run by steam by two engines of sixty horse power each. It is a most wonderful enterprise and its success is largely due to the energy of William P. Pierce, Esq., a Boston dry goods merchant, the son of Jacob Willard Pierce of Newburyport.
