The 75th anniversary of Graco is a time to look back on the history of our company and reflect on the progress we have made. It is also a time to think about the future, and the opportunities we have to build an even stronger and more vibrant Graco. As we do so, we can look with pride at what we have accomplished. Over the decades the company has served its stakeholders - its customers, employees, shareholders and communities - well through sustained profitable growth. With commitment, skill and hard work, our employees and management around the world have worked together to achieve many ambitious goals we set for ourselves, leading us to where we are today.


Historical events have also played a significant role in the company's growth. Weathering the hard times of the Depression and meeting the challenges of World War II readied the company to participate in the post-war economy of the 50's and 60's. Developing new products and entering new markets, Graco expanded its worldwide presence throughout the 70's and 80's. Graco entered the 90's well-positioned to participate in the greatest economic expansion in US history, and we achieved record levels of growth, profitability and shareholder value.

As we enter the 21st century, we can be proud of what we have built in the last 75 years. Graco has a world-wide reputation for the highest quality, most reliable and most technically advanced products in our markets, world-class manufacturing, an unmatched distribution network, outstanding customer service, and a strong financial position. The years to come will present even greater challenges, with the accelerating pace of change, ever more demanding customers and stronger competition. But with dedicated, skilled employees and a management team committed to continuous improvement and operational excellence, Graco is poised for even greater achievements in the future. It has been a wonderful journey so far, but we are convinced that the best is still ahead.
