Saco Lowell, one of the oldest american textile equipment manufacturers, closed its doors and stopped manufacturing the machinery for textile industry a few years ago.

Saco Lowell made textile, fiberglass, and reclaim machines. It had a long and outstanding history dating back to 1813 when Francis Cabot Lowell first established the Boston Manufacturing Company with the objective of making textile products. About the same time, an ironworks company was just starting business in Maine along the Saco River. These two companies eventually came together, added the resources, and by 1950s Saco Lowell had become one of the most prominent names in the industrial world.

Saco Lowell manufactured yarn production, cleaning, blending, carding, drawing, roving and other machines that were designed to work with cotton and synthetic fibers such as polyester, rayon, polypropylene and others. The company also designed and supplied equipment for woven as well as non-woven markets. Saco Lowell machines were sold worldwide to a diverse customer base with different requirements.

The US textile and carpet production has been declining for the last 25 years and today only a handful of plants operate inside the USA. For over 15 years, Potomac Electric has manufactured servo motor and drive electronics replacements for Saco Lowell MODEL 955 and MODEL DJ draw frames used in many of these plants.

We at Potomac Electric pride ourselves in saving our customers money in maintaining and running of current and obsolete automation equipment for textile industry.
