New Castle, Pa. — Precision Feedscrews Inc. held a 30th anniversary celebration Nov. 18 at the screw maker's factory in New Castle — where the company is run by sisters Jane Fagan and Mary McAnallen.
The event for customers, the company's 23 employees and their families, comes just a few months after the company's founder, James J. Fagan Sr., died on July 29. He was 81.
His wife, Eileen, helped organize the Founder's Day open house. Visitors had plant tours, marked by old family photographs showing Jane and Mary as children and with their young parents. Fast forward to today, and Jane Fagan is vice president. Mary McAnallen is plant manager.
Precision Feedscrews makes screws for injection and extrusion, as well as augur screws for moving granular material, such as curbside scrap plastics. “We remanufacture screws and make new screws,” McAnallen said.
She said the company supplies screws to plastics machinery manufacturers, processors and material companies.
