1963 New York World’s Fair & American Furniture Mart

The company proudly displayed its Cocktail Bar and Stereo System at the 1963 New York World’s Fair.  Unfortunately, production was discontinued since the company’s quality standards made the price prohibitive.



History of the Company—-In 1942, with just 5 employees, Arnold Stock started Stock’s Machine Company. On October 1, 1947, Stock’s Machine Company incorporated as A. H. Stock Manufacturing Corp. Little did Arnold realize when he first started making aircraft parts for the Navy in 1943 the many changes that would take place over the years — from having a watch tower for spotting planes during the Korean War to housing the Newton Fire Department from 1947 to 1963. Most of the original equipment for the fire department was manufactured here and, in 1957, when a new fire truck was necessary A. H. Stock Manufacturing met that need. Because of that association with the fire department, the company remains very involved with fire apparatus and equipment today and still has the capacity to empty a 3,500 gallon tanker filled with water in less than 1 minute.
