Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The history of Enterprise Engine and Machinery Company dates back to the late 1800's when a German immigrant, Henry Martens, made San Francisco, California his new home in July 1881. The name "Enterprise" was chosen by Henry due to his belief that the United States was truly the "land of enterprise." In the beginning, around 1886, Martens and his two business partners, H.W. Heany and A. Anderson primarily supplied castings for gold mining machinery and other industrial equipment which included compression cylinder castings for large engines. Following the aftermath of the notorious 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire, the Enterprise Engine and Machinery Company played a key role in the rebuilding of the city. Although this was an unfortunate natural disaster, it helped Martens and his partners gain additional momentum for expanding their business.
