Precision Castparts Corp. has been headquartered in Portland, Oregon, for more than 60 years. The business has grown from a small manufacturer of investment castings for a wide variety of applications to a Fortune 500 company producing investment castings, forgings, and fasteners for aerospace, power, and general industrial customers. This growth has resulted from increased market share, entry into new end markets, and strategic acquisitions. Over the course of the company’s history, Precision Castparts has been led by just three chairmen and chief executive officers: Ed Cooley, Bill McCormick, and Mark Donegan. Each has made significant contributions during his tenure to make Precision Castparts one of the foremost manufacturing companies in the world today.
