The Electrical Machine and Equipment Company (Emeco) was founded in 1944 by Wilton Carlyle Dinges in Hanover Pennsylvania. During WWII, the U.S. government asked Dinges to make lightweight, strong chairs that could withstand water, salt air, and sailors. Emeco named the chair with a number: 1006. It takes 77 steps to build this recyclable aluminum chair, and it takes a human eye to know when the process is done right. As a campaign sponsor, Emeco provides their iconic chair as the symbol of Sit With Me, a national advocacy campaign designed to raise the visibility of technical women by providing a gathering place for people (men, women, technical, non-technical) to acknowledge the valuable contributions of women in computing.
