||Engineered Devices Corporation was conceived in the
late 1970s, originally established as a forming and shoring
business to serve the New York Metropolitan market.
In 1981, the company expanded by acquiring inventories
from the Adria Corporation and DIC Concrete Corporation.
Operating from a modest location in the South Bronx,
EDC quickly developed a strong customer base. In 1984,
the company acquired the assets of the Federal Shoring
Corporation, extending its market into eastern Pennsylvania.
In 1986, EDC began production of wire and metal building
products when it acquired the manufacturing assets of the
Hico Corporation of America, including Hicos rental inventory.
That same year EDC moved to its present Corporate Center in
Ridgefield Park, NJ and the next year opened its present fabrication
plant in Hazelton, PA. Soon after, the company began production
of Mechanical Splices for Reinforcing Steel, an operation thats grown
into one of the largest Threading Centers for Rebar in the Northeast.
Throughout its first 20 years, EDC has operated as a closely held
family business and is now managed by fourth generation, experienced
concrete industry people. From the familys early days at the turn of
the century as Royal Fireproofing Corporation, the Limbardo Family
has had a continuous and successful presence in the concrete
As we enter the 21st century, EDC has evolved into a leading producer
and supplier of shoring and building products on the East coast of the
United States. With its extensive rental inventory of shoring and forming
equipment and its in house ability to manufacture on a customer demand
basis, EDC continues to build customer confidence. EDC will continue
to provide quality service to its customers and welcome new opportunities
to serve you.
