B. W. Bowmar, Co.      Precision Metal Fabrication

B. W. Bowmar, Co. was founded in Escalante  by Bill Bowmar in 1976. Bill began his machine shop career at the age of 16 when he wanted a gasoline engine for his model plane. Instead of buying him an engine, Bill's father bought him a lathe and drill press and helped him to make his own engines. Bill continued building his experience as a machinist until the day he died at the age 80. Bill's son, Paul, grew up in the machine shop and is now the owner and operator of B.W. Bowmar, Co.
