ECO Air Meter Historical Information
ECO Air Meters - Originally called Economy Air Meters, and then shortened to ECO air meters, these vintage petroliana items were first introduced around 1917 by the Western Manufacturing Company of Oskoloosa, Iowa. In 1928 the John Wood Company purchased the ECO division of Western Mfg. moving production to their factory in Bryon, Ohio. In 1930 the John Wood Company acquired the Bennett Pump Company and they moved production again to Muskegon, Michigan. That same year new ECO Air Meters were introduced, called the ECO 39 series. In 1947 the most popular model, the 90 series, of balanced inflation ECO Air Meters was introduced. This air meter - that operates not by electricity but by air pressure - was available as a standing pedestal version, a wall mount versions, and available with a coin operated mechanism. The John Wood Company still produces many products today, however the ECO division was discontinued.
