Dates of existence

1872 - 1984


The Dominion Foundry Co. was established in 1872, and was managed by R.M. Dixon, with local farmers holding shares in the company. In 1888 it was bought out by W. Shives Fisher and R. B. Emerson. The Foundry produced many models of stoves and ranges and operated under the Fischer family until the 1970s. In 1908 a massive fire destroyed much of the Enterprise Foundry, but shortly thereafter construction began on a new building. The Enterprise Foundry was a major employer for people in the town of Sackville. Its central location in the Maritimes and on transportation routes contributed to the success of the company. In 1984 it merged with the Enamel & Heating Products Ltd. (formerly Fawcett Foundry) and continues to operate today.
