Ford Meter Box traces its roots to 1898 and the home of Edwin H. Ford in Hartford City, Indiana. Mr. Ford served as superintendent of the town’s waterworks, which struggled with shortages due to excessive unmetered usage. He set about to solve the problem by designing an outside meter setting that would stand up to the winter cold, and within months he was filling orders for his new meter boxes. In 1911, Mr. Ford moved his fledgling enterprise to Wabash, Indiana and The Ford Meter Box Company was incorporated. Since then, the company has outgrown two locations and has expanded its facilities numerous times. Today, production facilities in Indiana and Alabama support a comprehensive catalog of nearly 30,000 products and variations. Ford’s manufacturing sites, aided by satellite warehouses, service hundreds of stocking distributors and municipalities across North America. 

Over the decades, Ford has invested in advanced manufacturing processes, giving them a unique ability to partner with our customers in product development. The foundry and machining areas feature a flexible approach to production, providing high speed, medium run and small quantity lots to meet the customers’ delivery requirements. Group technology in cell assembly areas and the strategic use of robotics ensure high levels of quality and efficiency. As an industry leader in innovation, Ford continuously works to meet customers’ requests for new product development. 

Although typically buried and forgotten, Ford Meter Box products play a critical role in the delivery of a clean and abundant water supply.
